Don't all the girls get prettier at closing time?
If you're not on a major label today, you're not gonna get played. They've got the market sewed up.
There used to be a lot of acts, which was good, because people don't want to see the same act every night. But, you don't want too many acts, you don't want to over-saturate it.
When a record co. finds a guy now, they want to own everything. They want to own the rights to market that person's particular name. They want a piece of the action all the way through.
So I'm trying to spread myself to the point to where I can do the night shows and not have to worry about the matinees, and do one or two matinees down through the year.
I don't own everything, I do have a partner.
If you have good food, people will come to your restaurant.
If I cut an album now and sell it for ten bucks, I can put seven dollars and fifty cents in my pocket.
I've grown up with my audience; they're my age or older. Not a lot of kids are coming to see me.
I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I do know how to count.
I try to stay ahead of things, if you know what I mean. I take the money I make and reinvest it.
I never made any money off of my records. It gave me the name across the country so that I could do some of the things in my personal appearances.
All I want to do is do my shows and play golf.
A record co. is just a vehicle for public appearances.
All I have to concentrate on is my performing.
All my money was made doing the dates and selling products when I was out there on the road.
Cause I can make more money going in and doing my recordings and selling them through my entities that I have, rather than going to a record co. and them release a record and pay me 5 percent of what they make off it.
I guess the nicest thing about being, I won't say famous but being popular is a more proper word for me to use would be that if you've got a recognizable name, a lot of times you can get people to do things for you ordinarily that you wouldn't get done.
I had a few stocks, but stocks took a dive. I never sell my stocks.
I had some airline stock, but the airlines tanked. I didn't have a lot of money in them, though.
My only failure was the restaurant in Myrtle Beach. I kept it open for four years. It was in a tourist town, it was only busy four and half, five months of the year. But the bills kept coming all year.
I'm set to have my best year ever: I'm hiring some acts and there will be a show in the morning, in the afternoon and in the evening. I'm going to use my theater to its fullest potential.
