Andy Burrows insists he is glad he left Razorlight and is happy he can now focus on collaborating with his favourite acts
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.
