Every single thing that I was told that I couldn’t do without a label – get in the charts, get on to the Radio 1 playlist – I’ve done.
As an artist, I don’t care about where we are in the charts and all that. The important thing to me is to connect with a creative project.

It’s very satisfying when you see your song at the top of the charts.
For me, geopolitical issues are becoming more important, because how can you understand economy if you don’t understand geopolitics? People think economists just deal with spreadsheets and charts. That’s a narrow-minded caricature.
I feel like I’m a product of this generation where everybody listens to charts with diverse music.
The energy behind Mr. Trump is just off the charts. This is a rank and file movement that you’re seeing, with massive turnouts from New Hampshire down to Mississippi, Alabama. I mean, his supporters are representative of the entire country.

When I was doing dancehalls, nobody was doing well in dancehalls. Dancehalls was not mainstream music that was blazing charts and knocking down barriers. This was an underground phenom.
We do a big business with our midsized-venue model. We don’t need bands to be on the top-ten charts to make money.
I don’t really look at the charts at all. If anything, I try to out-do what I’ve done before. I try to make music that I like and I trust my own judgement with what will work with a wider audience.

The packaging of Led Zeppelin‘s IV doesn’t have the name of the band, doesn’t have the name of the album: It’s got a guy on the cover with a load of sticks on his back. This record didn’t quite get to No. 1 in the United States – it went to No. 2 – but stayed on the charts for years and years and years.

I loved music from a young age. At school I played the violin but I didn’t sing much; there was an expectation of the kids in the choir that they’d have really pure tones, and my voice had all this texture to it.

Probably the biggest-kept secret about ‘Ring of Honor‘ is that when you go to see a live show – I’ve had people in their 60s from down in North Carolina that have seen a lot of wrestling tell me that it was the greatest live wrestling show they’ve ever been to. The atmosphere is off the charts.
I have no aspirations of world domination through the pop charts. None at all.
Belushi was one of my very first heroes. At a time when film, television, and music were undergoing tectonic shifts within American culture, he was at the center of it all. At that moment, he had the number one show on television, the number one film at the box office, and the number one record on the charts.
Lula is off the charts. You cannot reproduce Lula; and you will always have to count him in.
