My dad's music was a great inspiration to me.
He walked out the bloody door and was never around. I'd admire him on TV -- listen to his words and opinions. But for someone who was praised for peace and love and wasn't able to keep that at home, that's hypocrisy.
On the one hand, I've had such a normal upbringing with my mum, who has kept me grounded, but on the other, the wild experiences through my dad.
He was like a real dad, you know. We used to sit down with guitars and mess around.
I needed to find out who I was outside the music industry, and for the first time in my life I found true peace of mind.
I've found constancy and balance between creativity and normality.
I remember picture postcard moments with dad flying a balsa wood plane, sitting in front of him on a motorbike, going to visit Ringo.
He wasn't a great father. He was a great musician. That's always been a touchy one, and it will be until I can find the answer, but I don't know if there is one.
I had always thought of starting my own record company. I haven't regretted the decision - yet!
