As his condition worsened, doctors recommended that he undergo surgery, but he adamantly refused. “My hips are fucked, I have arthritis, bad. I went to get checked out and my bones are crushed. The lady would say, ‘Oh, you may need a hip operation, a replacement. I think I’d rather just feel pain. Which is ridiculous, obviously. I know that. Just fix them, but it’s the stigma, saying you’ve had your hips replaced. What’s next?” she told Mojo Magazine.
He even joked about his fiancée Debbie Gwyther, whom he said could become his caretaker, in the same “Little Britain” style.

At another point in the interview, the English musician described what his ordeal from severe arthritis is like: “When it’s cold, my hips are like snaps, crackles and pops. I need heat. I can’t sleep at night because of the pain so I am taking herbal sleeping pills and they have saved my life. One of them, seven hours out, no pain, nothing.
Although sometimes he feels that he can’t, he is always fighting to come out on top, because he considers that pain keeps him alert. “The pain is fine; however, I am definitely on the down slide. Oh yeah! My eyes are screwed up, my hips are screwed up, I have old thyroid. But we’re all going to die, right? Or are we already dead?” he told the magazine.
