Watch NME.COM's video interview from Benicassim 2008

Richard Hawley spoke exclusively to NME.COM before his main stage set at the Spanish festival last night (July 20).

The ex-Longpigs guitarist shared the Vodafone FIB Club Stage last night with headliner Morrissey and Leonard Cohen. He later described the set as “one of the greatest shows of my life.”

However he admitted that playing festivals can be “like walking into the unknown. On stage you’re flying by the seat of your pants and sometimes that can be exciting but other times you can shit yourself.”
