I've gotten a chance to talk to a lot of musicians tonight. This is a big night for them.
I think right now we have empirical proof that this music is infinitely more enduring than people gave it credit for back then. When a lot of the music of this era has fallen away, this music has absolutely endured. It's on commercials: "Kickstart My Heart" is out there right now, "We're Not Gonna Take It" is out there right now, "Don't Stop Believing" is literally, like, the anthem of earth at this point, so I think it's proven its mettle, so to speak.
What genre would you like to do this with next?
We just sold a jukebox musical all set in the country world, so we're about to go into the country world and do the same thing I did with Rock Of Ages.
