Quote of the Day

I prefer to connect with fans from the stage. Like, I don't have a Twitter page, or anything like that. So for me, that's what the show is about. For me - is a way to interact with fans; being up onstage and showing them, through music - which is all I really know - the best way to say thank you.
With a film, you have to pare down and take stuff out and squish it all down into a 110 page script.
I don't have a Facebook page and I don't think I will but Twitter for me is a way to take control of the message. Kind of wrestle it back. It's something I'm enjoying.

All I've ever really done is page 3 in The Sun, and not every man reads that.

When I was in college, I was the editor of the literary magazine and insisted neither the editors nor the writers be specifically identified-only our student numbers appeared on the title page. I love that idea and still do.
Most people don't read editorial pages. I think I must have been 40 before I even looked at an editorial page.
