2)Devon- “You have been quoted as saying you are living a fantasy. Is that still true?” Jimmy- “I have been lucky enough to be here, after a few close scrapes and to have a music career that lasted this long. I have learned from my experiences, and keeping the business side running parallel with it. It’s been interesting ride.”
3) Devon-“Is it still fun for you? Do you plan to retire?” Jimmy- “From what?” Devon- “That’s the way you look when you are on stage, like you are having fun.” Jimmy- “It’s been amazing gift and an amazing lucky run I’ve had. I would have never imagined I would still be doing this. I figured I would buy a boat and move to the Caribbean. The length this has run, the fun this has been, and the stages…It’s still magical the things that pop up, that I can’t believe are going to happen.”
