It definitely wasn’t like, ‘Hey, I’m going to steal that, and nobody’s going to know.’ The original ‘T.R.O.Y.’ came out in 1992, and it was like a 20th anniversary kind of thing. All of those intentions were there for it to be resurrecting a classic for a new generation. I tried to honor it.

See, the ‘On the Road’ that came out in 1957 was censored. A lot of the honesty of it, the bitter honesty, is in the original scroll version that came out in 2007 on the 50-year anniversary. Back then, there was so much post-Second World War fear that was imposed on everybody – ‘You must live life this way’ – and these guys were bored.

People looked back and nobody could find anything that predated it.
I am honored to be one of this year’s Urbanworld ambassadors for the festival’s 20th anniversary, joining my friend David Oyelowo. I have always had a special relationship with Urbanworld, back to my days as a festival publicist to previewing my earlier films and now as an ambassador.
In 1998, Vanity Fair asked me to write a big piece for them on the 50th anniversary of the New York City Ballet.

As a rule, I am very skeptical of tying books to anniversaries. I don’t think readers care.

Why do it now?

‘Easter’ is a movable event, calculated by the relative positions of sun and moon, an impossible way of fixing year by year the anniversary of a historical event, but a very natural and indeed inevitable way of calculating a solar festival.

My intention still is to write a play to commemorate, possibly rather skeptically, the 50th anniversary of the Russian revolution.

I was invited by President Bush to come to the United States on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the mutual defense treaty.
The only big things I’ve purchased are my dad’s heart valve and a Rolls-Royce for my parents, for their anniversary. And that was only because my dad had a Lady Gaga license plate on our old car and it was making me crazy because he was getting followed everywhere, so I bought him a new car.
On the 11th anniversary of 9/11, it is some consolation that the man most responsible for that terrible morning will not be smiling smugly to himself as satellite TV brings to the leafy boulevards of Abbottabad the somber images of New Yorkers commemorating those who perished in the Twin Towers.

This year, 1996, has been designated the ‘Year of the Vaccine,’ commemorating the 200th anniversary of Edward Jenner’s vaccination of James Phipps with cowpox virus and subsequent challenge with smallpox virus.

Love is not weakness. It is strong. Only the sacrament of marriage can contain it.

I’ve been in love with the same woman for forty-one years. If my wife finds out, she’ll kill me.
Mom and Dad were married 64 years. And if you wondered what their secret was, you could have asked the local florist – because every day Dad gave Mom a rose, which he put on her bedside table.

I worked with Dionne Warwick, did shows with Bette Midler, and then I did the 25th anniversary of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Springsteen at the Garden. It was all important stuff because you want people to know you can work, you can sing, and you can still look good!
I visited Libya in September 1996 for the 27th anniversary of the ‘revolution’ – a military coup that a 27-year-old Gadhafi led to topple the monarchy and since which he has ruled. Some were optimistic that Gadhafi’s ‘revolution’ could herald a new Libya, but it didn’t take long for his brutality to stamp out any such hopes.
Actually, the year 2000 is our 25th anniversary of doing Captain & Tennille. I can’t believe it. It’s like, how is this possible?

I’m not a big fan of anniversaries.
I don’t feel guilty about the music I love. If you feel guilty about something you dig, then you should stop feeling guilty about it.

We concentrate so much on anniversaries and birthdays that you forget it’s the Tuesday that’s tough that really counts. Sometimes she just needs some flowers or even just that ear. It’s the little things that count. It’s the regular days of the year that you have to keep your attention on her.
Marriage is an act of will that signifies and involves a mutual gift, which unites the spouses and binds them to their eventual souls, with whom they make up a sole family – a domestic church.
Some people ask the secret of our long marriage. We take time to go to a restaurant two times a week. A little candlelight, dinner, soft music and dancing. She goes Tuesdays, I go Fridays.

I am gonna have to put on my deer hunting gear, though, to stay warm!
Starting a business is risky. Half of all new businesses fail to experience a fifth anniversary. And everyone knows that you could lose all the money you’ve invested in your new company and then some. Those are the obvious risks of trying to be an entrepreneur.
A lot of good love can happen in ten years.
The punctuation of anniversaries is terrible, like the closing of doors, one after another between you and what you want to hold on to.
