"It's peculiar and unnerving in a way to see so many young people walking around with mobile phones and iPods in their ears and so wrapped up in media and video games. It's a shame to see them so tuned out to real life," Contactmusic quoted him as telling Rolling Stone magazine.

"Of course they are free to do that, as if that's got anything to do with freedom. The cost of liberty is high and young people should understand that before they start spending their life with all those gadgets," he added.
