Bobby Vee Quotes
I remember when I was first starting out in the late 50's, and everybody at that time said rock 'n roll was gonna die. I was 15 years old when I started, and I certainly didn't believe that was true. I thought anything that feels this good and makes me want to tap my foot like this can't be a passing fad like everybody says. Of course, they were wrong, and here we are in the 90's and it's alive and well, and getting programmed all over the country, and really all over the world. So it's been a great journey.
England in particular. They view America differently than we do as Americans. I think they really see us as a giant jukebox or something, all of this great music that has come out of this century in the last 75-100 years. Dixieland music. Jazz, and some of the great Bluegrass, and the Rockabilly. The pop music of the 60's. Certainly the hard core rock 'n roll of the mid 50's. This is our music. I think they give American acts points for this. Just by association they like you. (Laughs). When you do a theater date in England, we tend to get the people that grew up with the music, and their kids, and the people that have discovered it since then. So, you really get the die-hard fans. Nothing could be more fun, to work to an audience that know your songs and they even know the B-sides of some of the album cuts.
