Pretty different. Uh, kinda sad, to be exact. I mean the radio was dead, the discos was dead, ladies was kinda dead, so I felt like if we wanted to make some noise & I wanted to turn anything out, I was gonna have to get something together, which is what we did. We put together a few bands & turned it into ‘Uptown’. That consisted of a lot of bike riding nude, but you know, it worked. We had fun. That’s why I wanted to come here on my birthday cause I wanted to give them a little taste of where we live & get a little taste of where you all live. To me, this is like my second home. If I could spend the night at somebody’s crib, I would .. cause this hotel .. they’re real nice to us, but this bed is hard!
