Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner doesn't dream about winning awards and says music isn't about getting 'a pat on the back'.

Bang Showbiz quote the star as saying, "I don't step up to accept a trophy for a race I didn't know I was running and act as though it's something I've been dreaming of since I was a little boy, because it's not the truth.

"If that's the truth for you, fine, but it's not ever been about that – I think any sort of victory in this trek comes with the conception of a song or an idea, not with a trophy or a pat on the back."
