Andy Burrows: No Razorlight Regret

Andy Burrows is glad he left Razorlight because his life isn't all about the "f***ing" band.

The 29-year-old rocker - who split from the 'America' hitmakers earlier this year amid rumours of animosity between him and frontman Johnny Borrell - insists he has no regrets about parting ways with the group.

He told BANG Showbiz: "I actually left the band back in January. But Razorlight is not the be all and end all. It's not all about f**king Razorlight, you know!"

Andy - whose 2008 solo LP 'The Colour of My Dreams' was critically acclaimed - is concentrating on his career and collaborating with some of his favourite musicians.

He added: "Right now I'm working on some solo stuff. Oh, and I'm going to be working with We Are Scientists which will be awesome. I love those guys."

Soon after Andy's departure from Razorlight, he spoke out about how unhappy he was in the group.

He said: "I hated being in the band. Johnny and I didn't get on. Now I've got my freedom. He never wanted people to know we both wrote songs and I couldn't be in control. I'm happy again now."

Things reportedly came to a head between Andy and Johnny during a recent promotional trip to America, leading the drummer to quit.

The pair have always had a volatile relationship and even had a brawl in a London bar following the Vodafone Live Music Awards in 2006.
