  • And um, how do you like the Japanese audience? I noticed that you’ve picked up a little Japanese.

I like them very much. I like that Japanese people are very polite.

Now, some people don’t like to play to them because they think they’re very quiet after American audiences. But, I like them. They’re very nice people. They listen and they applaud.

And once you get used to the fact they’re not all drunk and screaming, like they are in America, maybe then I… it’s… it’s okay.

It was better for me to test the atmosphere here. It was Eric’s (Eric Clapton) idea actually, because the audiences are known to be appreciative. Whereas, you just don’t know what’s gonna happen if you go in Europe or America.
