Girls are always running through my mind. They don't dare walk.
I have been to hell and back. I had a very, very bad nervous breakdown.
I respect the people who buy my records and come to my concerts. It's only fair that I always try to give them the very best that's in me. After all, I need them more than they need me.
Victoria was just as much in love with me as I was with her. We could not bear to be apart for a single second. We were like two lovers shipwrecked on a desert island. There was no world outside our love.
In 1973 we moved to the British Isle of Man, and I put my first band together for one year, named Melody Fair.
Songs don't just come out of the air. They take time, but it's good fun, too. Maurice gave me encouragement.
I grew up in a show business family, so we've always had a great sense of balance, being so close to my parents. I've always known what is and isn't reality.
I have to take time occasionally to get away from the pressures of this business. If I don't, I think I would get stale, and that would show in my music.

I grew up in a show business family, so we've always had a great sense of balance, being so close to my parents.
I'll have to get people to write songs for me right now until my own writing comes around.
I've been working at performing for five years now. I've been working in Australia and Spain and England. When I was only 15 or 16, 1 was performing in bars; I could have had legal problems, but it's also the only way to get to know what music is all about.
