Listen to your inner-voice: Surround yourself with loving nurturing people. Fall in love with your art and find yourself. Music is the great communicator.
I was very famous as a young man and I celebrated both the good and bad times with drinking.
I heard the Beatles and the Stones and Mom bought me an electric guitar. I played lead for four years and then switched to bass. One day someone suggested that I should sing so I sheepishly stepped up to the microphone and the rest is rock history.
