I made up my mind several years ago that I had worked very hard to get to where I am in life and that I was only going to do things that are fun and exciting.
The important things are children, honesty, integrity and faith.
I still think I’m not as good as anybody else.
We teach about how to drive in school, but not how to manage finances.
I never tried to sing like anybody else, fortunately I didn’t sound like anybody else. It just happened.
There’s no doubt in my mind that people on the West Coast – L.A. particularly – and the East Coast have no clue at all about what’s happening outside their own little bailiwick. And they think everybody is stupid because they are not sophisticated.
You’ve got to live life to write a book about it.
I guess I’ve never really been aggressive, although almost everybody else in show business fights and gouges and knees to get where they want to be.
I’ll keep going until I get to the point where I can’t get out on stage.
