In the years that followed, he met producer Adamski and they composed the song Killer. The song became his first big hit in 1990, reaching number 1 in the UK charts.

My songs are like children. i love them all I encourage them to grow, to reach their full potential and then send them out into the world.
We want to be in a situation of maximum pressure, maximum intensity, and maximum danger. When shared with other people, a bond is formed that is stronger than any connection.
There’s nothing like going out there and performing and making that connection with the audience. Even after all this time, I’m still excited about it.
The music industry is really funny. When you have a hit, everyone knows who you are and everyone wants to do a duet with you. Then when you fail, people suffer from amnesia.
tips for success
There’s nothing wrong with being unsure of your goals for some time. But if you know what you want to do, you shouldn’t let anything stop you. Not only is it okay to make mistakes, they are necessary to really grow. Perfection in every respect is practically unattainable without first making mistakes. If there were no mistakes, we as humans could not distinguish between good and bad. Ultimately, you learn to accept your mistakes and recognize a good performance as a success. You cannot walk the path to success alone. It’s important to make mentors out of people you can trust, whatever you may need them for.
