LOOK WHO’S TALKING……
...an interview with PAUL YOUNG
Who was your hero when you were younger?
My musical hero was Paul Rodgers from Free, his phrasing was the basis for mine
What do you consider your greatest achievement?
A number one in America with Every Time You Go Away. It’s hard enough to have any success in the U.S., but to get a No.1 is rare for a Brit!
For people who want to follow in your path what are 3 things you should NEVER do in this business?
Never go on a talent show. Never get talked into anything you don’t want to do. Never let tiredness get the better of you, ie. Grumpiness in an interview, it goes worldwide! Lack of sleep: you need it!
What was the last picture you took on your mobile phone?
A bottle of Tequila! Oh dear….. for somebody else, honest.
What 4 people, dead or alive, would you love to have a dinner party with?
Billy Connolly, Sofia Vergara, Ry Cooder, Steve Lukather

The freedom I had
Where do you lay your hat?
Wherever I happen to be, of course!
Do you have any special requests when you’re on tour?
Not really, I change what I drink & eat all the time… I get bored easily
How does being part of a band differ to being solo, do you find it difficult to share the limelight?
Not at all, I prefer being in a band, always have. Even when solo, I kidded myself I was in a band!
