Questions answered by Darren on the BBS back on September 3rd, 2000.
*Most embarrassing moment?
Falling offstage. In Brisbane 1998. In Spain in 1997. It was bad! How can you recover from that? You can't. I also regret most of my long hair moments except the I want you u.s vid. Loved that hair.
*Most interesting/unusual gift from a fan?
Recently received a timeline booklet of my entire career..(in Vancouver) that had everything.. every single event of my career documented. Also the inspiration from Jennifer in Toronto. She knows who she is.. but she is brave and so special. I am so proud of all of the people I'm met who struggle with disease or violence and still survive and THRIVE.
*Favorite board game?
I don't really like games. Seriously.
Perhaps a Brazillian card game called MAU MAU which is Portuguese for BAD BAD! hehe..
*Favorite colognes? Favorite womens perfume?
My fave colgnes are always changing. I don't wear D&G as much anymore. I have a new one. I still love it. In general I think these things are really private and special and should remain a mystery. Generally I love woody and earthy scents.

eurythmics peace tour.

Truly is not one of my faves because I'm so sick of singing it. But I know I'll sing it for the rest of my life and now I sing it and get happy for the people who's song it has become. It's not mine anymore. It belongs to the lovers of the world.
