On The Decadence Trend In The 70’s:

On The Decadence Trend In The 70’s: “Oh everyone is obsessed with decadence at the moment, because decadence is the big thing, right? In two years time it will have blown over completely, and we’ll go onto something else. I’m not worried about my relationship with decadence, simply because I transcend it. I’m at once part of it, and not a part of it For instance, there are some performers who are right there at the centre of it. Oh, not Jagger “ definitely not Jagger. He’s a rare bird “ he transcends it just like me, though net necessarily in the same way. I don’t know if I have the capacity to have his sort of career.

Quote Of The Day….

“You have a different class of people now where the talent element is mostly gone and the fame element has taken over… It makes a very crowded field for people with talent to elbow their way to the front.
