American group THE Dandy Warhols frontman Courtney Taylor credits his low self-esteem with his high creative output.

The BOHEMIAN LIKE YOU singer dreads turning into a cheerful rocker like Sting or Phil Collins and believes his dissatisfaction with the world is vital in making his music interesting and inspiring.

Taylor says, "I haven't moved on past self-loathing and self-doubt.

"If you move on past those things, you're done, you're Sting. Sting Collins.

"Every time I think I've grown up, I do or say something that shows I'm a complete child."
