I did my first bit of gigging in months at the weekend, performed a few songs at the Billboard annual staff holiday party in NY with the house band.

To my surprise, the fierce rock queen I expected to meet when I nervously entered her dressing room was literally shaking with nerves herself. To be honest, I've never imagined doing anything else.
