Cris Cohen: How long did it take you to get comfortable on stage, to know how to work a room?
Huey Lewis: About 27 years. The first 27 years were a little shaky. Now I've got it nailed.
Cris Cohen: What was the turning point?
Huey Lewis: It was gradual.
Cris Cohen: So there's a bit of a learning curve.
Huey Lewis: No question about it. My favorite story there is… Paul Newman was interviewed as part of a big retrospective of his career. They asked him, "What do you see when you watch your old films?" He said, "I think about what a lousy actor I was. I had no idea that for my first 10 years I was just terrible."
