| I could easily not be the person that people know.
| It's about finding great artists and being part of their careers.
| I would say that I've been lucky. Being blessed and not really ever giving up.
| It might be a huge hit, it might not; but you learn something doing it.
| The most exciting thing for all of us is movies and movie stars.
| But a lot of the old fans are listening to a lot of the younger music. So I gotta keep moving forward, and they'll move forward too.
| There are people that bring artists to me to look at it and it's a question of whether I like their music and their look and if I think there's something they have that makes them different and commercial.
| The whole process of this record was an education for me as a musician.

| When I was in top 40 bands, I always had to learn new material and new styles.
| The Internet is a whole new world opening up.
| I don't go to that many Broadway shows, so I can't really say anything.
| There's artists that I'm working with on a new label of mine. Foxy Nova and Supa Nova.

| Commercial music, for the most part, is popular music and you always have to keep that in mind.
| You can find a diamond in the rough a lot of times.
| I enjoy music that is commercial.
| The reality is, some people don't want you to change or go anywhere different.

| I'm continuing to produce and will start a new record soon, as well.
