"I wish we could talk to each other under better circumstances. I am actually in the studio recording. We were supposed to start yesterday, but we could not get all the trucks in to get all my equipment out of this big storage facility. We thought we would leave it a day and hoped the waters would subside, but instead they continued to go up and up."
"At this stage it is possible that I have lost all my equipment, all my road equipment, and all of my guitars and amps, everything. We have to wait and see to what extent the waters came up... but we know it is not good," The Daily Express quoted the Sweet Thing hitmaker as speaking with CNN anchor Rick Sanchez.
The star is however grateful that he and wife Nicole Kidman survived the disaster that is estimated to have killed 29 people so far. He adds, "This pales in comparison, people have lost everything... We are certainly financially helping, my wife and I are." Other stars Toby Keith and Brad Paisley have also had their equipment damaged by water.
