1 I don't want to bore myself and I don't want to bore my audience. I think the only way to survive is to change. If you always do the same thing, the moment will come when you're bored and frustrated.
2 There are certain artists who arrive at a place where radio's no longer important. I mean, I don't think Bruce Springsteen worries very much about radio play. But in our Latin world, very few artists can survive without it.
