  • You are never really prepared for criticism.
  • When you write a song you have an idea of how it should be sung but it doesn`t work out that way if someone else records it.
  • When you are in your 20`s and 30`s, you just want a hit record and you don`t really care how it happens.
  • We were very influenced by The Beatles, no question.
  • We had to leave Australia to become international stars.

  • Maurice would prance into a room, you know, and his presence was immediate.
  • Leaving Australia was the hardest thing I have ever done.
  • I`ve worked with a lot of people who are more famous than myself who are terribly insecure.
