How does it feel to still be dancing after all of these years?
I regret the years I didn't. Let me dance at least another life time.
You released “Between My Head and the Sky” in 2009 and various dance remix EPs after. Do you feel that getting your music out to DJ’s is the best way for it to be heard these days?
Dance remix, is certainly a great say to communicate. But BETWEEN MY HEAD AND THE SKY did get a wide and good response, too. I love Dance remix. But I love making rock CD's as well.
Sean produced your last record, what was it like having him helm the controls?
I didn't give up my control. We never thought otherwise.
Your new single, "Move On Fast" has a very clear Euro-style dance beat and feel to it. Was Europe an inspiration?
I didn't think so.
One of the remixes has a clear dubstep sound to it, do you feel this style and genre is starting to really break in the mainstream?
What is the mainstream in your mind? Pop?
When a remix of one of your songs are done, do you pick the artist, DJ or producer who you would like to have reinterpret the song?
Sometimes. But most of the time, it just happens.
You recently did a handful of gigs with Sean last year in Brooklyn and LA with some magnificent artists, everyone from Bette Midler to Iggy Pop to Lady Gaga to Antony and the Johnsons. How much fun was it to have all of your friends and your son on stage playing with you? Will you be doing more gigs like that in the future?
I never dreamt of doing a concert that way. That was Sean's doing.
How did you decide who will get to play at the shows with you?
Sean called them. I was horrified and loved it in the end.
Who really impresses you in music today?
I like Lady Gaga's Performance Art bit.
You recently overlooked the remastering John Lennon’s back catalog that was released on his birthday. What was it like taking a trip down memory lane with his old work?
It was painful and great at the same time.
How do you think John would look at music today? Would he like it? Would he be inspired by some of today’s musicians?
I think he would have loved making music digitally.
You are very active in social networking and connecting with your fans, do you feel that these tools are very important for today’s artist?
They are the new media in Art. Of course they're important. Important, exciting, and fun.
Aside from music and art you have always been a champion of human rights, what was your initial reaction to the release of Aung San Suu Kyi after all those years under house arrest?
I am, as so many people, very glad that she is out. I hope she will stay healthy and free for the rest of her life.
Do you believe we will see world leader’s one day give peace a chance?
Yes. I do.
