Vince: Probably 50 years, I should think!. We may not be doing
we'll probably be together for a long time.
PS: Do you have any long term plans?. Do you ever think that far
...'well maybe the careers might stop in 4 or 5 years', or do you

funny faces. It just makes you really nervous. So I always keep a
PS: You don't still get nervous do you?
Vince: Erm..yeah, I do yeah.
PS: I would have thought that over the period of time you've been
and been performing you'd have got used to that by now. It can't
than performing live on stage surely?
Vince: Well it is, because it's unexpected, y'know. You don't know
someone's gonna ask you or what your answer's gonna be. At least
every night you're doing the same thing.

the early material that he recorded. And..but now I kind of listen
everything, you know, I've got a varied record collection.
Andy: Er..well, I used to listen to all my Mum's and Dad's records
