Enjoy!

“I keep trying to retire. I’ve been working for 36 years now. I asked Roger to announce my retirement after my last tour ended in 1991, but he kept the stage, he kept the lights and he kept the costumes in case i “changed my mind”. He says if i ever stop working, i’ll get really old overnight. He’s probably right.”
