I had the question asked of me before, 'What do you like better: singing or playing guitar?' If I'm gonna be totally truthful, if that microphone's in my hand, I'm loving it. When the guitar's in my hand, I'm a little nervous, but I'm still loving it.

I think this is really a defining moment for the Arab world. The problem is, it is all going to be about blood, sweat and tears.

I think initial instability is something that we are all extremely nervous of.
