When quizzed if he had any rituals before any gig, Paul said: "Well yes, kind of. I've got a couple of little things I do in the dressing room, but it's really minimal, you know, it's more superstitious than anything. I gargle with salt water." And when asked if it makes him sick, he added: "Yes, it does. It's this kind of bulimia thing I've got going on. No, it's supposed to be good for you,salt water. I don't know why. I persuade myself its good for me."
He added in a radio interview with 'Absolute Radio Breakfast Show' host Christian O'Connell: "I've only started doing this recently. It's in the dressing room, there's a little packet of salt and a kettle for me."
