Elbow joined the Sun in an online chat with fans where Guy was given several questions regarding the missing book filled with his lyrics. Guy said, “I can’t believe I’ve lost the book either as it’s nine months worth of songwriting. I lost it between Manchester and London during a time when I was travelling up and down a lot. I was so cheesed off when I realised I’d lost it.
“Some people say ‘Can’t you remember what you wrote and just re-write everything from memory?’. The thing is, I often write my lyrics when I’m drunk and can’t even remember them the morning after I’ve written them, never mind months later.”
