- Five-time world champion Ronnie "Rocket" O'Sullivan said Saturday he sees himself as more pop singer James Blunt than The Rolling Stones. The mercurial 41-year-old was speaking after he steamrollered 2005 world champion Shaun Murphy 13-7 in their grudge second-round match at the World Championships in Sheffield. "I don't see that I need to write a great album any more, I just need to be a supporting act. I don't mind letting the other guys write the good albums," said O'Sullivan. "I'm happy to just be invited along and have them bring me out for half an hour -- 'Here he is, he's still alive, he can still perform' -- but then I'm happy to fade back into the security of life. "The Rolling Stones are still the big act, they don't support anybody. Maybe I'm a bit like James Blunt. He seems a pretty cool dude," added O'Sullivan of the 43-year-old former British Army officer who has sold over 20 million albums globally.
