“I had a record deal back in the 80s, when I was very young. I did session work with Joe Walsh. I’ve been a professional musician my whole life; people always said, ‘Hey, you look like Rod Steward!’ and so I started doing Rod Stewart. That’s how I basically got involved in this business.
“I’ve always been a fan of Rod Stewart. You try to really enact the character a lot, but you have to put part of yourself in it. Otherwise, it’s not real. The hairdo – actually, I did the very first Bugle Boy commercial on MTV, and they styled my hair like this for the commercial. It’s easy maintenance; run your fingers through it, and you’re ready to go.
“People having fun, being energetic, really getting into it, you know. It’s always fun when people really come up to you and say, ‘Is that really your hair? Is that really your voice?’ It’s a great gig. It’s a wonderful thing to do for a living.
“Probably the greatest thing about working in Legends in Concert is the camaraderie. I mean, I’ve met probably my best friends in the world in the people who impersonate other characters – Alan Jackson, Tina Turner. There are all kinds of friends of mine who are just amazing. I have life-long friends I’ve met in this business.
“We would like to invite everyone to come see Legends in Concert. I can guarantee you’ll have a blast. You’ll be wondering if you’re really seeing the real characters or not, and it’s energetic, fun. It’s something for everyone. So please some see the show, and guarantee you’ll have fun.”
