I go to the King's Road and I do see changes. There are shops I miss and new ones I'm glad to have. As a kid when we went to different towns, there would be different shops. And now they are all the same.
It must be very frustrating for young designers. The fun of shopping in the '60s was there were so many places that did unique things. My favorite shop, Granny Takes a Trip, was at World’s End of the King's Road. They did the most wonderful clothes. But one time I went away and when I came back, it was gone. I don’t know what happened.
The '60s opened the doors to the working classes. I came right out of left field. I was the first working-class model. I was part of the working-class revolution, though I didn't know it at the time. It was suddenly fashionable to be working class.
I enjoyed the '60s, but I am not as nostalgic as some. I worked hard you can't just hang out and be successful and it was great, but I enjoy my life and I'm much prouder of what I've done over the last 30 years most recently, starring in a play and releasing my new CD.
