I don't try to just be a blues singer - I try to be an entertainer. That has kept me going.
Everything I record, I just try to sound like me and come up with songs that suit what I do, and then just go for it.
When you don't have much money, you worry that they'll just put you in the ground someplace and your loved ones won't know where you are.
You just can't beat the person who never gives up.
If I'd just tried for them dinky singles I could've batted around .600.
