David answers fans' questions
Thank you to everyone who has submitted a question. I can't possibly answer each of the more than 800 questions but I will attempt to answer some of them. 800!!!
To all who asked about my health: I am doing well. I am keeping busy. Of course, I have good days and some not so good. Don't we all? I am 67 years old!
Megan and Debbie: Where is " HOME" now. I live in warm Florida. Great for the arthritis.
Cheri: Is there a question you have never been asked? How would you answer it? Yes, this is it.
Angelica: Who is your biggest music influence? My parents and grandparents had a huge influence on me when I was young. Since then, many, many artists have influenced me, including the Beatles, who I first saw on the Ed Sullivan show, and of course Jimi Hendrix.
Janet, Sharon, Anne and many others: When will "Songs My Father Taught Me" be released. The songs should be finished by the end of the year. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. I have had so much fun recording them with my band. They are so talented.
Anita: How long were you doing concerts in Las Vegas? The list of concerts and shows are on my website. I loved my time in Las Vegas. Hectic, creative and very rewarding.
Claire: What instruments can David play and does he still practise? Guitar! I try to play each day. Is there a better way to relax? Some of you may have seen my attempts to play the drums and piano in the past.
Jayne: What brings you the most peace in your life. Playing guitar, playing my Black Knife Strat.
Deb: Did you ever act with your mum or dad, if so, when and what were you in? I was in ďAnd So To BedĒ with my mom. It must have been about 1965 in Los Angeles..
Susie: How do you write a song? Do you write the music or the words first? Usually the melody comes first. Sometimes a song starts with an idea for part of a show or a from a phrase. The music usually comes to me more easily.
Aase: If you had to choose another profession, what would it have been? Luckily, I didnít have to choose another profession. As a young boy, I didnít show much interest in anything else other than acting and singing. I am sure that genetics played a part and I loved that people enjoyed my shows. Itís been a very rewarding profession, connecting with the audiences.
Thank you for your questions and well wishes. I will try to answer some more of your questions soon.
