I'm doing exactly what I want to do, and I'm having fun doing it.
When you're a kid, you have this feeling like you're indestructible. Your mortality doesn't even occur to you. But as time goes by, you realize, 'I better cut this out or that out if I want to continue to exist.'
My father was a Norwegian tenor and my mother a New York Irish librarian.
I got arrested once on stage in Memphis for looking too much like Liza Minnelli.
I still do a lot of shows with Brian Koonin, but we haven't had a full band lately.
You know when you read that someone has to leave a show or a tour because they had 'nervous exhaustion'? Well, I had one of those and discovered that I was quite close to death. I always assumed that my lifestyle was going to take me at an early age, but when it was actually occurring I was, 'Not yet!' I pulled back.
