FamilyTime ManagementPrioritiesParentingRegretMy only regret in life is that I didn't spend as much time with my kids as I now wish I had.

MusicDifferencesThat I can't relate to today's music or morals doesn't make either necessarily bad. Just different. I leave the judgements to others.

TimeChildhoodAppreciationMemoriesJust the other day, it seems, the kids were running through the house, slamming doors, breaking glass, making noise. Time goes by so quickly. Sometimes everything seems so fleeting.

LifeGreatnessRelationshipsWorkI worked with the world's greatest talents and then went home to the world's greatest woman. It was, and is, a great life.

CareerPerformingActually, I would love to make a music video. Maybe it would finally put to rest those persistent rumours that have followed me throughout my career - particularly when I was on camera performing - that I had died.

SuccessAmbitionPeople have always thought that I wasn't ambitious. They judged by appearances and were fooled. I was competitive. I wanted success and was willing to work for it.

MoneyIn many ways, that affection is the real reward for 56 years in the business. Although the money ain't exactly bad either.

FamilyI had 13 weeks off and I would pack up the family and drive to some mountain retreat where we could be together and fish all day. I loved it. I needed it.

The business has changed greatly since my day.
