I was going to write a very long post, probably the longest I've ever written. I may from our dear wise maddie on March 18, 2016:still do it. But I'm too tired right now, so I'm just gonna post this. From this new interview: http://www.jsonline.com/entertainment/m ... 07441.html
Q.Do you ever feel, as some of your fans do, you're not as successful as you deserve to be?
A. This isn't the Olympics, this is music. It's not about getting a medal, it's about moving people, it's about connecting with people. It's easy to get wrapped up in the business. It's not really why I got into it in the first place, so I like to keep my eye not on the prize, but on the experience of getting to create music. I'm very lucky.
I'd like to add a question, too. What exactly does it mean to be "successful"? What really??? Because, for me, Adam is a very successful artist. I mean it. I couldn't be happier for him. He's very lucky indeed. And he knows it. Bless him and his pure, grateful heart.
