Chad Kroeger - Chad Kroeger's spiritual beliefs

Picture:

Nickelback's Chad Kroeger has his own spiritual belief system.

The 'Trying Not to Love You' singer doesn't follow one religion, but draws a number of elements from different faiths into his own set of beliefs.

He exclusively told BANG Showiz: ''I would call myself more spiritual than religious. My beliefs are my beliefs. I believe in karma. There are so many different things that you like to pull from so many different religions.

''At the end of the day, the golden rule is called the golden rule for a reason - do unto others as you would have done to you. In terms of commandments you could probably just do that one and you would be well off. If everybody could adhere to that one, we'd be OK, as long as a masochist wasn't in charge of people.''

The singer-and-guitarist - who is engaged to fellow Canadian singer Avril Lavigne - said he thinks many people follow his example and work on putting out ''good energy'' through their lives.

He added: ''I think a lot of people do that, a lot of people talk about putting out good energy, and it's not just, 'Thou shalt not, and thou shalt'.

''It's far more in-depth and I think that can be too black and white when there's so much grey. It's OK to have faith in something that you can't see or touch.''

Nickelback's 'Here & Now' European tour comes to the UK on Monday (01.10.12), starting at London's The O2 before travelling around the country. Visit www.nickelback.com or www.livenation.co.uk for more information.
