The times when the Californian-born Manhattan resident stood for folk pop hits like "Luka", "Marlene On The Wall" or "Tom's Diner" are finally over. Today, at 57, the superstar of the 80s is at home in the world of art and theatre - as a director, scriptwriter and composer. Which is why her current project "Lover, Beloved" also proves to be a mixture of a studio album and her now second stage play about the US writer Carson McCullers (1917-1967). Vega admits with a smile that she is almost a bit obsessed with her: "I have the feeling that she was far ahead of her time and suffered a lot from it. She was socially critical, bisexual, exceptionally talented and very sensitive. In addition, she was already seriously ill as a young girl, she had health problems all her life. When she was 30, she suffered a stroke and remained paralyzed on one side. Nevertheless, she worked every day, and her work is characterized by a combative touch. I admire her for that."
stage clear for three
Yes again on big tour! In May the indestructible rock group will come to Germany for three concerts. In her luggage: three classics of her eventful history, which she gives to the best: "The Yes Album", "Close To The Edge" and "Going For The One". The British formation answered at the round table whether they still have time for a new album and how their new singer Jon Davison is doing.
