Thread Name: Nice Compliments that you have had
Subject: RE: Nice Compliments that you have had
All compliments are nice. I never really quite believe them, because I know some places I've played my guts out, played really well and still gone down like a lead balloon.

Basically the   nicest, was when a lady asked me to come out of retirement and sing at her 105th birthday. I'd sung at her 95th birthday and her daughters 50th wedding anniversary.

The thing for a pro is not believe the compliments, or the nights when they call you rubbish. Just know that the truth is in there somewhere.

I think its in Great Expectation that someone says to a drunken Pip - Know your own worth!
