My daughters are here, and that makes me feel good. And with the spirit of Nick Ashford, I think I'll make it through. I have no choice.
Motown was the mecca. It was every writer's dream to work there.
In transition I think the spirit goes somewhere, but I don't think it leaves.
There is a formula that allows you to write a decent song. But a song like 'You're All I Need to Get By,' it just writes itself.
I guess I'm in a state of becoming. Even though I've had a full career and I've been around a long time, it's like dinosaurs are coming back. It's all new. I'm having to be on my own and seeing how exciting life can be now.
