Kenny Loggins reveals his biggest regret

SINGAPORE: American singer Kenny Loggins is the man who brought the world amazingly catchy songs like "Footloose" from the movie of the same name, "Danger Zone" from "Top Gun" and "I'm Alright" from "Caddyshack".


Kenny Loggins

His songs have been widely featured in Hollywood films in the 80's as well as the 90's, and continue to be popular today.

But Loggins, who promised to perform all his hits at his May 24 concert in Singapore, revealed that his success came at a price.

"My biggest regret is that because I'm a travelling musician, I've missed much of my children's growing up time, especially with my older kids, when in during the 80's I toured a lot.

"I missed too much of their childhoods, and I do regret that," said the father of five, in response to e-mailed queries from Singapore media.

If he could do everything over, Loggins would probably like to have spent more time with his kids; though it isn't the only thing he would have done differently if he could turn back the clock.

Loggins expressed that he probably would have gone with a different musical style instead of the 'folky' style he is known for.

"I always dreamed of being in a rock and roll band like The Who and if I could turn back the clock, I'd try to be in more of a 'rock' band and less of a 'folky' kind of guy," said Loggins.

"That being said, I must say that I am extremely grateful for the career that I've had, it's been a lot of fun and a lot of different kinds of musical styles and I'm still having a great time, so I can't complain."

Besides sharing his thoughts on his own career, Loggins also gave his views on the state of the music industry, which is currently dominated by youth-oriented acts like Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga.

The veteran singer-songwriter, who has been in the business since the 70's, described the industry as being in "disarray".

"There's a more varied kind of music available to a wider audience than ever before but the music industry and radio has tried to distil it down to one or two things and it's not working.

"The music industry has focused on only the youth market place and only records that can sell in the multiple millions. [The music industry] has completely abandoned everyone from 35 up and I think that's a big mistake," he said.

Kenny Loggins performs May 24 at Singapore Expo.
