Let’s say I’m not feeling well, and somebody would say to me, ‘Just do an easy show, just go out and do a light…’ – I can’t! I cannot do that kind of a show. I have to still put 150 percent into it, and it’s funny: it’s so healing to do that.Gene Pitney
I’m a performer. I’ve tried everything there is.Gene Pitney
The thing I always liked best about touring abroad was constantly running into different people, different cultures, different foods. It really pumped up my batteries… I’m constantly playing to a demographically diverse audience… one generation is driven by nostalgia, the next by curiosity.
