Christie Eliezer of Beat.com.au spoke with Silverchair frontman Daniel Johns who admits to being quite a recluse. Johns responded when told REM’s Michael Stipe admitted to going three days without talking to anyone: “I can definitely beat that, I’ve gone for three weeks without speaking to anyone! I have a phone at home but only our manager and some friends have the number. I usually let the answering machine get it when it rings. Most of the time I’m at home playing the piano or the guitar, working on a song.” Beat.com.au has since removed the article.
