Can you imagine how your career might have been when you father
would be still alive?
I have no idea. But I think it would have been interesting
to do music same time as my father. Strange maybe, but interesting.
When I think about saying to my father in a bar: "So, how has
the recording been today?" That is a really strange thought.
But probably I would have tried to steer clear of my father's way,
just to develop my own style and to ask him for his opinion afterwards.
I can't really say. But, who knows. Maybe he is listening to what
I do anyway.
What about the rumors that you and the Beatles would play together
at the Live-Aid-concert last year?
Actually I wanted to play with my own band at that
festival, but there was no opportunity. So I was at home, watching
it on TV when I got the news about me playing with the Beatles. My
Manager was at the festival and was totally confused and called me
and said: "You are not going to do that, right?" That all
got out of control.
So you never thought about a reunion with the Beatles?
No, never. The rest of the Beatles have their own projects.
And I have mine that I rather want to do. I never thought about a
reunion of the Beatles.
You have a lot of young female fans…
Do I? Where are they, where??
At your concerts, of course. You probably have noticed that. Do
you think you are sexy?
Well, I don't think I am very sexy, no. I trample around
like I always did. I mean, everybody tries to look good from time
to time, and I want to impress people when I am on stage. But I don't
want to overdo that. I think I am quite a normal guy.
