I have one message for young musicians around the world: Stay true to your heart, believe in yourself, and work hard.
I love songs that have a rocking and grooving feeling.
I've been touring now since about '68.
God, I'm just a fat bald guy, 60 years old, singing the blues, you know?
Don't go on American Idol, I think you'll spend the rest of your life living it down and I think it's getting kinda scary, isn't it?
It's all a matter of hearing what I like and seeing if I can make it fit into my style.
I have always been a sucker for ballads, but you have to be careful these days, you can't overload people.
Well, over the years, I've developed a stable of songs of which I'm known for and never get tired of singing.
I would like to be able to do a song with Ray Charles, before we both get too old.
Once you get into entertaining a quarter of a million people, it's a very weird place to be.
It's interesting, as I said on the last tour in America, the audience actually came out, they had to have been the kind of fans who listened to my music via their parents, you know what I mean?
Back then, I, most rockers loved Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis... you know in the '60s.
Europe is usually where I am usually galloping around.
For me, the focus are songs, which really get the audience moving.
I had a job when I was 16 at a gas fitter, which was a bit like a pipe fitter.
