Ronnie (2008)Edit

  • A song is communicating with people; Entertainment is a different part.
  • I've always considered myself a failure: I feel I've never done anything wholly right. Everybody will tell you "Oh no, how can you say that, because ten thousand people clap you on a night?" but part of that is reflex action and part of it is because you're reasonably good. But if you're great, that's a different thing.
  • I wouldn't call myself an actor or a singer for that matter, just a journeyman. I feel I must have a talent somewhere for doing something but I'm still not terribly sure what it is. I suppose it's a talent for being myself.
