“This getting older stuff ain’t for wimps.”

“My idea of heaven is a place where the Tyne meets the Delta,
where folk music meets the blues.”

“I actually spend as much time listening to new music as to old. Probably more. I just try to get something out of it all. Take Van Morrison. His voice has been a part of my life since “Them,” and it’s a wonderful thing to be singing with him. But it’s also wonderful to discover somebody new.”
