    Author: Jo Stafford

I always make this joke that I know you were expecting to see the big skirts and the hoops. But that was a long time ago. Artists aren't always seen as real people. If you start out as a teenager, sometimes people want to keep you locked as that. But I'm a woman now.

    Author: Jody Watley

It's nice to get a response from the artists that I cover.

    Author: Joe Cocker
