“I used to worry about my temper when I was young I used to think, ‘My God, I’m going to kill somebody one day’.”

Laughing, he added: “And now I’m worried somebody is going to kill me, so I wouldn’t want to get into a scrap now.”

Recalling a particular incident, he said his manager had to calm him down when he took offence about a comment John Lennon made.

Tom said the rocker mocked his It’s Not Unusual hit, by changing the lyrics to: “It’s not Sir unicorn, it’s an elephant.”
