I've got two places I like to be. Portugal is one.
But Jesus changes your attitude towards yourself and towards other people.
If you can play guitar and sing, you can probably get a gig down the road playing at a restaurant, but don't throw your life away chasing something that is so elusive it will only lead you to regret and may turn you bitter.
I realised that God has placed Christians everywhere, to support each other, to support the needy in those areas, and that is the thing that I find is a great plus.
If you have got the public in the palm of your hand, you can be sure that is where they want to be.
There is no better news, than the fact that Jesus can actually turn a life upside down and save it.
The more I read my Bible the more I veered away from the Jehovah's Witnesses.
And, of course, Barbados is the other place where I like to be.
There's loads of things you can do to make things easy for your throat, you can drink a bit of lemon and hot water couple of spoons of honey, you can gargle with port, I've done it a couple of times myself - but don't swallow it!
So I will go as far as I can into rock and roll carrying my Christian banner.
Celebrities meet a lot of people and we just can't maintain them all in our fuddled brains.
But, of course, one relies on the everyday people who just simply like your music, for whom you may not be a hobby but they enjoy being in your presence at a concert.
We need to pray and read the Bible every day, and regardless of whatever else happens to you, that tends to keep you close to Him, because you are constantly in touch through His Word.
But Portugal has a peaceful feel about it. I sit on the terrace overlooking the vineyard there and I feel cut off from the world. You need that sort of thing.
The thrill of hearing your own voice recorded is still there, I still love it, going into the studio and thinking how can I sing this song and between the producers and the musicians you find a way of doing it.
