A: Every time I do music from the early days or music like that, it’s just the song itself or the music itself — it has melody and it just resonates with all audiences. And when I’m performing it, they become like a brand-new song.

 

Q: How would you like to be remembered?

A: I have always felt that it is more important to stay present, to stay in the moment, to stay now. I never try to think about legacy and being remembered. For me, if I could live a good life now, if I could do the things that bring me joy, if I could enjoy my children and enjoy the weather or whatever it might be, that is love and that is my life.

As far as my stage show, I’ve always tried to keep the emphasis on the music. I want very much, when the audience comes in to see the show, there’s a good sound. If we keep our attention on presenting good music with a good sound and, of course, good visuals, that is really what the show is all about. It’s about the music people come to hear and to have their own private, personal memories about each of the songs.

That is really the exciting part of being onstage at this time in my life.
