  • I befriended one DJ in particular and he worked at a club called Danceteria, which was one of my favorite clubs. And we talked a lot about music. I knew a lot about singers, and I knew a lot about different groups and stuff like that. And he said: 'How come you know so much about this.' And I said: 'I'm really interested in music.' And he said: 'Well, in what way?' And I said: 'I'm a singer'. He said: 'No kidding'. And I said: 'Yeah, and I just happen to have this tape right here'. I mean I was carrying this tape with me everywhere, at every club, waiting for the moment to pop it on somebody. So I said: 'Would you play it?'. And he said 'Well I can't play it in the middle of the night. I haven't heard it. What if it's terrible? What if everyone stops dancing?' And I said 'Alright well you listen to it, take it home with you tonight, and listen to it. And I'll come back here tomorrow, and if you like it then you play it again. So that was a Friday night, so he went home. On Saturday night I met him again, and I came back before the club opened and he said he really loved it. So he played it. He played two songs. One of them was 'Everybody'. (December 1985)

If someone sticks a camera on you what's the difference? (August 1984)
