"Either irrational or at least we perceive to be irrational and specifically we also all deal with people who are knows alls how can we do a better job at helping them to behave and more. Broadly how can we do a better job at being able to handle the irrational situations and people that we run into today. I'm so glad to welcome back to the show. Someone who's absolutely an expert at this. It's going to help us to really navigate some of the more difficult situations so we can do a better job at serving people and serving organizations. I'm so glad to welcome back to the show mark golson. He is a founding member of the newsweek expert. Form and marshall goldsmith. Mg one hundred coach. He works with founders entrepreneurs and ceos in dealing with and overcoming psychological and interpersonal obstacles to realizing their full potential. He is the co author. Along with dr dianna handle of why cope when you can heal. How healthcare heroes of kofi nineteen can recover from ptsd and also trauma to triumph a roadmap for leading through disruption and thriving on the other side as well as being the author or co author of seven additional books. He is the host of the my wakeup call podcast and is the co-creator and moderator of the multi-annual documentary stay alive an intimate conversation about suicide prevention. He was a ucla professor of psychiatry for more than twenty years and also a former fbi hostage negotiation trainer. One of his many books is titled talking a crazy how to deal with the irrational and impossible people in your life mark. It's been nine years. I think since you're on the show last. I'm so glad we've kept in touch. Thank you so much for your time. Well it's great to be back and right out of the gate. I wanna give people a little bit of marketing one. Oh one there's a term called mental real estate and it was taught to me from someone in orange county who is one of the original madge. Nears tony baxter And what he shared with me was the term mental real estate. And i said tony what is that. He said it's when you come up with something that's familiar. And then you twist it you own more mental real estate. He said for instance. Pirates of the caribbean owns the word. Pirates in the minds of kids because when kids think of pirates they think of pirates of the caribbean disney owns pirates. And i was thinking of that because my book talking to crazy has a certain amount of mental real estate. When i told people i was going to write about that and it wasn't about mental illness it was about dealing with people that drive us crazy. They all they all said. I need that book today for today. So that had met louis gate but i thought that was pretty good mental real estate. Yeah yeah it is and actually this leads right into the first thing i wanted to ask you. Is this word crazy. And that's not a word that sometimes is thought of as the most politically correct word. You're a psychiatrist though. So i know you've given a lot of thought to use this word in the title when you say crazy. What do you mean you know. I got a lot of blowback and i still have mixed feelings because i love my profession. I love the people who work in mental health. It's a it's a tough go and the world needs it more than ever and people would come to me in my profession and they'd say how can you use the word talking too crazy. We already have a stigma. How dare you do that. I said did you read the book. They said no. I said it's really a book about how to deal with people who drive you crazy. The people the impossible the irrational people in your life. It's not about mental illness. It's about how people drive you crazy and the title actually will get people to hopefully read the book because the book is really about empathizing with them so that you can disarm the way. They're being difficult with you. Indeed and as i think about the book and the advice you give and also the point you make that we all can be irrational right. It's easy to look at the other person and say okay. This person's been really irrational in this situation or is irrational often and yet of course we all step into that and i. I love the example. You given the book about someone giving you advice along time ago about what to do with a dog sinks its teeth into your hand which have share that if a dog sinks its teeth into your hand and you try to pull your hand out it will sink. Its teeth deeper. But if instead you push your hand into the dog's mouth it will start to choke in gag and it will let go which leads me to a little anecdote that at the beginning of the book that people found fascinating. Can i share that one. That was when. I had a little incident with road rage. Sure please so. I was having an. It's a little bit like pushing your hand into the dog's mouth. So i was having one of those days where everything. I did backfired. I mean i couldn't do anything right. And i'm driving in southern california. That's first mistake. That was a mistake. That's right so i'm driving from actually the westside of los angeles into the san fernando valley. You probably know that stretch of road. Yeah and And it's too crowded on the highway. There called the four. Oh five so. I'm taking a powell. Road called sepulveda's boulevard. So i'm i had a terrible day in his i'm driving. I cut off someone in a pickup truck with his wife any haunted horn and i just sort of wave and i cut him off again. Oh no i'm just so out of it and he pulls up he pulls up in front of me and he stops and i'm so out of it. I just stopped behind him. And this big six foot six. Probably you know just a strong surfer dude guy. He comes out and before he comes out. I can see his wife is telling them not to get out of the car. And i'm just staring at them because i'm having a terrible day. And so finally he gets out of the car he comes over and he bangs on my window and i must not have been rational but i must have pretty good instincts and i lower the window. I mean who would lower window to someone is banging on your window and he says to me you cut me off twice. Nobody cuts me off and you cut me off twice. I'm gonna show you never to cut me off again. And then i looked at him. And i said do you ever have one of those days where everything you do backfires. I mean everything in you hoping to run into the person who will put you out of your misery. Are you the guy. He said what i said. Yeah i don't cut people off in traffic. I don't cut people off in traffic twice i. I'm just having the worst day and nothing's going right in. Are you the guy who's going to put me out of my misery..

"Tokyo disneyland so tokyo disneyland is important for the historical reference because this is the last version. That mark davis personally worked on so by the time that tokyo disneyland was starting to take shape in the oriental land. Company was working with wed in the imagine ears to get everything hashed out to get. The park open market actually already officially retired from his full-time position as an imagine near at that point however he was still working on a contract basis for very important jobs or maybe a better way his jobs of things that he wanted to work on and he initially was not going to be involved in the tokyo disneyland version of pirates of the caribbean because it was just it was the third replica. You know he kinda thought what could go wrong. Can you mess this up. What could go. Yeah exactly and so the way that he described it was essentially would put some young imagining her in charge of it. They made some mistakes pretty early on and there were also some cultural differences where the oriental land company followed a pretty strict hierarchy. And a of times it was based off age and so they had this gentleman working on the part of the caribbean attraction who was older in age and basically the wed imagineering and the other employees in the oriental company couldn't really challenge him on anything and mark was the only person who superseded him in age and so when he came in he was able to kinda take control and get it back on track. So it's kind of missteps by both oriental in company and wed really derailed. It and mark came in and again. The book is called that we get a lot of this information Mark davis in his own words. So maybe there's an alternate version out there where he was very brash. Clashing skulls together to get it done. But it didn't. That's not the depiction that it made. It sound like in the book in the book. It truly did just sound like a cultural difference which is probably to be expected if you're going into some of these international parks that's very well known. You know part of asian culture. Is you respect your elders that the elders in any scenario trump everything else you know. That's just pretty typical. So it's almost funny that they had to send the old guy in to get it done the way that they had envisioned it in. That's kind of what happened. They hit it off. I think they were able to see eye to eye because it was seen as being more respectful relationship again coming from the old guy. I would love to see who were the young imagine ears. Are they people that we know that kind of you know couldn't get it off the ground like is it a young. Tony baxter. Is it a young joe. Rhody that go out there and now and can't get things done. I'm sure we can find it out there somewhere. If anybody knows let us know. Yeah that'd be cool but again. Tokyo disneyland follows the same control story. You start out not in the pirates area. They fall you into it based on a waterfall..

"Have a good time for the first time. I actually work with them. I played mr smee in peter pan and me in a in a in a mid drift and cutoff shorts. You down to the knees with With my birkenstocks and made a lot of fun with them. But that was like my first introduction to working with these kids and i saw the potential to create a potential in all of them and so a lot of the kids have gone onto the really cool things Two of my drawers from the hobbit are now married with their own kids. That makes me feel really old But yeah it's like. I'm super proud of my work. I was able to do with them. Well i love the fact that you worked with kids and probably have a much greater impact on them. Then you might even realize. And and i'll do the google image searches for kevin lively mr smith later when we're done i'm sure you can find out what fighting fighting pictures of my production of grease however from sixth grade. So we have that in common. We will talk off line and our history with greece but the work that you did all the training and the experience that you did paid dividends not just for those kids but for you as well because not only. Do you get the role as a skipper in joel cruise. Which i believe is still one of the most coveted roles to have but you eventually become a point of contact there and you were the person that that disney comes to to give interviews and do tours and teach other not just skippers but but other aspects of the company is almost being sort of an ambassador within disney Four on cruise skippers. Yeah it was like a weird ceremonial title unofficial title. It all stemmed from Tokyo disneyland was doing their twenty fifth anniversary and to celebrate the cast. Granting twenty-five cast wishes and one of the skippers in tokyo wanted to have a gathering of skippers from around the world in so they held auditions for skippers in hong kong anaheim and orlando and the all had their different processes I was selected as one of the skippers from anaheim to represent walt's original jungle cruise over in tokyo. And so i got to spend a week there working with the crew taking out trips for their cast members. We did a lot of like q in a classroom type setting things. It was experience of a lifetime But when i got back from that anytime they needed to do like they wanted interview skipper for an article about working at disneyland or something they would. they would often come to me which was cool The first time they were working on the jungle cruise film myself and Jerry who was the horley at at the time a longtime skipper. We took out the screenwriter of that. Tom hanks tim allen version and we showed him around jungle cruise We hosted the a disneyland paris ambassadors over jungle cruise Yeah so. I got to do a lot of really neat things over jungle. Well and i think that they're excuse me. Sorry so i have right now. All right the growth spurts coming in. I hope so. God i mean we can put on my whole life so i have to imagine that there. There has to be this huge sort of almost incumbent responsibility because you are kind of these skipper to represent all skippers. You know that was a little bit of pressure on you. It feeling you know that you are representing such a beloved group of cast members talked about like during tokyo or or now or tokyo. And i think as we get to start talking about now to the the tokyo process. It was the audition process. There's three rounds. The first round was kind of gauging overall interest and people kind of put their name into the hat. The second round was we had to take out a a cruise of are of some local of some of the disneyland managers. And then from there they picked the finalists and then our for final judging. It was an early morning. Pre-opening thing we had a panel of judges We had matt gray. Who was one of my bosses at the time. Kevin rafferty John and nancy lassiter. Martin aren't tony baxter's are judges. No pressure whatsoever no pressure. I was the first one First one off off the dock with everybody It was marty's birthday. I'll never forget that. And so we take out the boat and everything goes great and was having a great time. fun side story with marty is raining that day and starting to rain more as my boat was coming back so in preparing for the next trip. They're like oh let's pull the canopies back because anaheim the the boat canopies can flop. 'cause we have really nice study days Sorry florida and so when they did that all. The rainwater just dumped on mardi scholar and he was such a trooper. He's laughed about it. They're everyone's having such a great time when they selected me they select also selected. Skipper mickey who has uncanny resemblance to big al from the country. Bear jamboree one of the nicest guys. You'll ever meet a fantastic fantastic skipper over from florida. We had skipper bath and skipper. Alex skip alex is now a d. twenty-three doing great things over there and from hong kong we had skipper mo- She was amazing and skipper. Andrew both fantastic skippers so it was. It was really neat having those representatives. Come through with me Everyone was really supportive Everyone i like to think it was like. Yeah you know. Kevin make sense I don't put myself ahead of other. Skippers amazing skippers out there. Every generation of skippers has has the. They're all stars. i. I'm just i'm just wondering the names one of the few lucky kind of floated up But yeah even to this day like just kind of like i take pride in being the jungle cruise skipper voice in the room and so being able to be involved with our latest effort I'm so so happy. That i get i get to represent our crews at the table because i know how important the jungle cruise is It's a thing that that crosses generations across state lines as just a love. A common love. That goes back over sixty years. And there's a lot is really important to a lot of people. And i recognize that and i respect it and i always try to do best by our ir skippers and honestly i think it's less about the attraction per se than it really is about the skipper of so what is it. What is it that makes you know Skipper exceptional because you're all sort of given the narration and the script do follow however closely are loosely. Whatever the guidelines might be but what in your mind makes an exceptional skipper..

"Have you know the time or resources with a how fast the reopening happened. But you know they didn't really have time to come up with new menus reach of these kitchens and so instead they kind of took advantage of the opportunity to give us a lot of our favorites back So i really enjoyed that. And i really love how they've been making use of roadshow place for entertainment and And again some like you know best of your kind of options in some some new booths. I'll i'll agree with that. I didn't go too often To epcot was really sticking with magic kingdom for that the static thing but Yeah i i went back to my favorites. I he really try to any new things. Now that i'm thinking about it clearly going with the wrong people. John clear clearly. Apparently there was somebody who would dare me A couple of quick little things got a grand floridian walkway a nice little leisurely walk over the magic kingdom. Probably not in the middle of summer. And what's old is new again. The epcot prison pylons are back. They came back right before christmas in the same location that the original nineteen eighty-two hidden stood I have not actually been to the park as yet to see them with my own eyes. Once the the walls have been down. But i've seen some spectacular photo. I know you posted some photos of the prisons at night. And they're gorgeous. Yeah they're really beautiful. And i think one of the things that's relief difficult to appreciate And a lot of pictures. You're seeing more of it now. But the extent to which the spotlight shine into the sky from it is really really stunning. and it really just opens up. You know that that whole area. And again i am such a broken record on this topic But like the extent to which the imaginary are good at honoring the past when the move forward and i know honoring the disney fandom You know as they move forward with new things i mean. This is just such a testament to that. Because it's it's this beautiful new thing but at a target really as a testament to the history of cod. So they're they're absolutely beautiful to see in person. You don't miss the monolith ceelo. Mr big no the great tombs yard. Yeah the the epcot graveyard. I always hated going in the front entrance because of those things. So i'm so happy that they're gone guys beautiful. It really has beautiful and to me. it's just am. I'm sure we'll talk about this more. Especially looking at twenty twenty one but especially with the extent to which the center of future royal really is just behind behind walls right now. It's just that it's a perfect little taste of what's to come So i i really enjoy them as ricky p. reminded of old epcot. Tony baxter keeps toying with us talking about him doing something hopefully with journey into imagination and i can only hope john is stably you..

"Just one or two additions or changes that you could do that. Would that would make this awesome? Do you know what those are are you just throwing it out there you put the evil queen at the beginning and the beginning or maybe even in the queue and so change it because then you're in a runaway mine train and you're running away from the evil queen. Hm when people get that though. Like maybe probably not probably ninety percent of the people would still experience it the same way that they do now that it's a fun small coaster that is themed Loosely on the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, but for us that love the story aspect of it putting the queen of the beginning are making there's some aspect of the queen is trying to get after you or maybe you're trying to protect smoke whatever it might be. I think there's something I can't I know it was either Tony Baxter Joe Rohde and I know we bring up every episode but one of them, I remember they said every good ride makes you feel like you're going to die and like something they would say there's a lot of times you can put that into a thrill context of that. I'm falling down An Elevator Shaft am I going to die and the fact that you're safe is what makes you enjoy the ride, but I also think that dark rides can do that as well. You saw that and Snow White's Scary Adventure. You just kind of get it in like Peter Pan's flight. You get it at Haunted Mansion for sure. I think you could have done something lighthearted here. It doesn't have to be as scary as no, it's Ginger but something to make you think you're going to die. I just wonder if maybe because Snow White's Scary Adventure was so much. They just die off that way back. You know, maybe they were just like this was too much for our Magic Kingdom people. We've just gotta give the people what they want give them happy and that's fine. It's it's it's.

He was there to make sure no one was taking pictures videotaping the show. I can walk out on stage this guy whipped out. And start filming. So if you on Youtube search for Green Finer D- Twenty three. You'll find it. It's there. Yeah. I've watched it a couple times. It was it was a special thing to. To be in that world now, what had happened? It was at just after that when I saw the response online after he posted a video, that's one of the things that to write the book name you. The book, which also makes me think because of that type of response it is it's indicative of a more global feeling about the character and again we're seeing figment and merchandise were seeing him as the mascot on the festival of the arts obviously and even the other festivals as well. You know I, feel like and maybe it's wishful thinking that the handwriting on Wall. Now, there is something more for pregnant. Come. I was convinced after last twenty, expose announced all the changes to epcot. We noticed that imagination there is no model. and. There was no. and. I'm like, okay I get the strategy. They don't want this to get lost. They don't want the impact with this to get lost in everything they're announcing here. They're going to save this for destination D when it comes back to walt. Disneyworld, and blow off of the local people probably even a closer connection do it. Again, you know thanks Kobe proven that happened since then but I still believe that Ron I, still it's It's one of the great side effects of being positive a guy as you are. I'm not, going to. Give. You. When you look for in people, you take a microscope. To these things I am I also convinced the somewhere behind locked doors and Glendale. Is A hell of. Maybe, two or three. That are sitting on the shelf somewhere. It's good. It's good ideas to the concept. For Epcot not to do something with it someday. And as long as people like Grad. Bird or alive. and. The people who are inspired to work at a match at. Imaginary. Are Fans like you and I are. Sums. GonNa cop sums. Hunting. License from anybody either we already own it. So.

"Thing that. Tony Baxter went into when we had that first meeting. So we needed to stop the ride we needed to talk about imagination. We couldn't do that while we were moving. You know you can't most these rides. You can't tell the story linear story and you had to in this Ryan. And so they came up with the idea was based on the way films moved through a projector. No. The way film cruises with sprocket meets gear travels around the gear, and we're looking at that and they said that's the way it was not the right. We washed stop the Rhine make it look like not dry. And the result is the wonderful seven and seen. X Four minutes where they could talk to you and put across the idea. And then expand upon it to the rest of the ranch. and. What people don't realize in the current version is how much of the original attraction track was cut? It's forty fifty percent of the original attraction was cut down. For the second racial is obviously that train seem track layout we have now. If you go on if you've online and do a search for imagination ride layout, you'll see breakaway of the building and it shows what the original track was like and what it looks like using it now. You and I saw people saying that they wish they could bring back. That's because I think that the original would stand the test of time. Not just because of. Again. Each room had such a unique message and feel and story that told me I still remember that avalanche room and the Room literature. There was the realm of art. Performing Arts. What about science? Science, science and technology? And then there was the. The image section, which was about photography and and cameras, and like that. So you had those five realms and then the sparks that were collected in the first scene were used in those realms and have. A lot of people. A lot of people have no idea that there wasn't that story line. Just not. Wow this is really trip. But there was this storyline that if you wrote it enough you could see you could follow and there was this message the whole thing. And I think part of what made the attraction. So beloved was not just. It was just wonderful blend of the characters and the technology and the story and the visuals, and certainly credit has to be given to the Sherman Brothers for song that you know still remains incredibly popular. Everything everything together with that ride like nobody's business and it was it was arrogant putting together. One of the things about the reason I, know that right so well is. It wasn't open for the first five months left open I walked the ride every single day when I go between sets of doing working with the Dragon. I would go in Iraq the track because I was I grew up at Disneyland just give you an opportunity to track for Gosh. Thanks and. Watch hoping thing being put together. And it was it was just a masterpiece for. Tony Baxter. Everyone. Well I think that's what made the dream find a character, and during to was you come from a place of. Obviously with such a long history of not just working in the theme park industry and but just having such a a love and personal affinity for it as well as it really shines through IMMA character. But I have to imagine meeting. Countless thousands of kids and families over the years there probably is a funny story or to to remember from three fighters interaction. So these kids. Know. There is nothing nothing nothing ever happened. It's a show about nothing like this. It's a show. It's like Seinfeld kids. Kids kids would sometimes ask if they could pull my beer. And I thought to myself. If you say, no. That's admitting that it's a fake beer. So I said yes. Yeah go ahead. And the kids had come up get up around here and I go out they all. Except one time. I said Yeah you could pull a beard. And the kid read. Our he grabbed a beer and he pulled down. These. Elastic straps that went up underneath the way. Mustaches hanging there. And everybody's looking. I said. Okay, you can let go now to thing over my face. And I put it back on my genuine. Business. I would. Get. Cajun IB. Kneeling down talk you a child. I did loosed. Strangely enough. Usually I turn and look, and it would be some guys on leave from the Orlando. Naval, base. So. Yes. Loo-. There were these things that happened. Was Probably Lou pulled on the beard I. Promise I was very kind of dream find when I met him I looked. Before today, I actually was trying to do a search to see if I can find pictures. Of that the least ones I had scanned of. Me As a kid 'cause I remember meeting I guess it was you like meeting dream. Finder. As a kid and just again wanting to spend all my time in Epcot Center and you know as a say that I think. Talk much with of this. not this ongoing, just as ongoing low for these characters but. A number of years ago I guess was a destination D. Here when it wasn't didn't was a destination, you agree expo when dream finder made A. Surprise appearance on stage with Richard. Two thousand eleven. characters have been gone since nineteen ninety. Eight. I was having lunch in two, thousand, ten in California with. Though it worked for twenty three. And he was talking he.

"I would say I'm a little torn because I. Lee Remember, the old figment, not the old old, not the original figment I. Remember these secondary version of. What became now our journey to imagine nation with pigment I would like to see the original Tony Baxter version with reinforced with dream finder and just go back into that Rainbow Tube again. But I also would really love to experience twenty. Thousand Leagues under the Sea geared toward are you I mean that I just love that entire concept which makes very excited to go overseas to Tokyo and ride their version of twenty thousand leagues out of the season. I'm really excited for that. So I think those two would be my. My two that I could bring back. Solid Can argue with any of those. So. Thank you so much for playing the fast paced around. Really loved your answers in letting us get to know more about your Disney fandom. We have one last question that we ask our guest in its. If you have one piece of party guidance that you can give to someone who's looking to jump into this community, maybe create their own Disney content maybe they want to open up a shop whatever might be to flex that. Disney creative outlets. What would be your advice to that person I think your answer for Tiktok is my answer in the professional world and that is constantly keep making content. No matter what and it's such a cliche in media this point but content truly is king a your your first fifty tic TOC soccer. So we're not Disney related and once he started making the Disney ones the followers and connects just started flowing in and. As you keep making. Disney. Took talks it just it keeps growing exponentially in your audience is getting more and more broad. but yeah, I, it's just. Even, if you're not feeling like it's going anywhere, keep creating content, you never know when it's officially going to stick. Yeah I would say for me. Personally won obviously don't give up even if things aren't going as well as you I, wanted it to when I first started matthew page I didn't get an order. And then things finally started up even with Tiktok I've barely had followers until things finally started making up I think the thing for me with making content like Josh said is make content you enjoy..

"It. And you know that one of his big feats is able to use the force to raise the X. Wing out of the swamp. A similar thing was going to happen to your ride vehicle. So I assume there's like an animatronic Luke in. He was going to quote unquote lift your ride vehicle. I think that's an interesting concept. It kind of makes me think of. You know dislike the slow dark ride in Avatar like you have a throw ride. And then you have like a lesser cool dark ride. That's what that makes me think of I think that could be cool. But I don't know if it's a big thrill attraction they were looking for. And I think that's probably a you know that's also. If, you're thinking about if you're in my glazer shoes that sounds very expensive as well. Trail to build that entire said. Compared to what we got, which was an idea that was not originally intended for Star Wars. So imaginaire Tony Baxter Heddon had an idea for a motion simulator he was working on for years with Charles Bright to fellow. and. Originally, they had this motion simulation attraction. Boasting basing it on Captain Nemo of Twenty, thousand leagues under the Sea. That didn't work out because that was going to be in an expansion of Disneyland that never happened. We'll talk about that in a later episode. The it sat on his desk for a few years, and then when the black hole came out in nineteen seventy nine, they were starting to have conversations about shifting this ride simulation to the black hole. However, it was a massive flop at the box office. So they couldn't justify spending that much money to put it in the parks because it was not intellectual property that people latched onto as well. So Tony Baxter caught win in the imagineering office caught wind that they were going to do the traction with George Lucas and so Tony Baxter got the chance to pitch Michael Eisner in George Lucas on this idea. And Reportedly they both loved it and I think it's interesting. One of the reasons that George Lucas loved it so much is because he was pitched on the on the idea that the story and the screenplay could be reprogrammed over time in at any time to incorporate new scenes. So new planets, new characters, and it could continue to be this evolving in living attraction, which.

"Instead, it's a runaway train. which fits both narratives, but it's the mountain being cursed that. Heads win over my head for. Twenty Years Yeah. Yeah! I never I never would have gotten that either, so I thought this was really fun. Part of our research because now I feel like we're going to ride. This attraction and we're going the look for those may be subtle hints of it potentially being cursed or anything like that, which will be fun? It'll be a new way to write it. So the Disneyland Paris version. Of course, we've never been on it. We've never been to Disneyland. Paris hopefully soon fingers crossed is by far the most unique and without going into all the details. It's longer it's faster. It's on its own standalone island, which is crazy and you travel underwater to get to it because the loading zone is on land. and to me, learning about it has one of the Best Disney. Call backs or symbolism whatever you WANNA. Call it. The town. It's called Thunder Mesa. Mark Davis I feel like it would be so happy to see that. Oh. Yeah, I mean. It definitely pays the Nice Omar to that original idea at original concept. So. Those are the kind of the big things from history that stout to me. And I think it even goes way way deeper than what we were able to scratch the surface on Especially, the Thunder Mesa part of it I'm interested. Do you think there any conflict between Mark Davis and Tony Baxter or Do you think Mark Davis was just happy to see some version of his idea. Come to life. I would have to imagine it would be more so the ladder I mean it's probably a bummer to have this grand idea, and then you know not have it funded in the not seeing it come to fruition, but I feel like at least getting to see part of it. Come to life is that would be somewhat rewarding? So..

Thank you so much for taking some time to join us. Our you run very great. How are you? I'm doing fantastic. It's it's an honor and a privilege to have you on the show, by the way Dion. And I know you must be pretty excited at the fact that you have a new album coming out on may tenth called she's back. It is your first album in five years. Correct. So you talked to us a little bit about that. Yeah. It's been I didn't realize it that long. He said, mommy. Bagging studio music. Isn't it? Your son your son actually produced the album, right? David, elliot. And I you know, I said well. Well, let's let me think about it. And they can. Song? Incredible ideas for the CD. And one said, yeah, we watch it. Wow. I decided well, okay. Let's give it a try. You know, and that's it. Seventy people basically a constant knee. Lee's? I'm here for. Gazing? She's back when I wanted to ask you this. Because you know, there's not many people that have your stature what you've accomplished in your career when somebody calls you a legend are you comfortable with that? I really am. Not I I consider people like Lena Horne Ella? Fitzgerald was seven Davis juniors. Thanks, not good. Well, obviously, you're very modest. But obviously a lot of people would disagree with you. Because you're getting your the recipient this year of the Grammy lifetime achievement award, and that will be given to you in Los Angeles on may third. That's that's a pretty big honor. It is. And it's exciting time late. Did he recognized by the kademi? My body of work is mind boggling baseball itself pleasing to know that they've finally realized that done something good. I think you've done a lot good. Like, I said, I think you're being very modest. Do you recall the first time you ever performed in Las Vegas? Do it was actually it was in nineteen. I believe it was do you? Remember where that was where was that at? So tell so what was that? Like your first experience back in in the early seventies performing in front of a huge crowd in Las Vegas. What was that like for you? As compared to when you go on stage now. Wonderful. So tell what incident. The place to work Gilly, and you have a room full of people. Okay. To see me, and they grown to live over the years. Very very exciting. And what was what made the decision for you to say, you know, what I need to come back to Las Vegas. And I know you've been performing your for years, but to come back and perform at Bally's this month. The office. Really? And you know, I haven't played in quite a while. So. So like. It was time for. Things that are happening to me. Now. In reality. Fair enough. No, no doubt. No question. Take me back to when you were a child or a teenager. Did you ever dream that you would have had the career and continue to have the career that you've had? Did you ever think that you would be who you are today? And and you'd have millions of fans all over the world, you know, just loving your music and just dying to be able to to see you in concert. I mean, did you ever? Did you ever dream of doubt that when you were child? Yeah. What I'm doing? Now, never really fun of when I do. I. I teach education. My credential. And. Know, my colleagues what I studied. So I was a very patient and needed to prolific. They Bank ranking holiday that. Records for them. And that led to meeting science Greenberg us directed. And having hit ranking. Oh, my I guess we we know we all make cleansing God. That right. Grandpa the end up going. I'm pretty sure you are just joining us. Dionne Warwick is going to be performing at Bally's starting on April fourth right here in Las Vegas at what point in your career. I think you you kind of alluded to it at what point in your career. Did you say to yourself? Whoa. I made it I did this. This is what I am going to do for a living. I the shoe doing concerts worldwide as well as new states. I never said I made it. I think I'm on that cat. Again, after the definitely say they've made it. People have been. Korea which so totally grateful that you know, there are still things I want to accomplish. That's why you're so successful because you're so hard working. But that's still amazes me to hear you say that with everything you've done in your career, you know, worldwide all the fans you have all over the place and how much success you've had. And like, I mentioned, you know, getting the Grammy lifetime achievement award, right PBS, just honored you I know that. And you were just aim the two thousand and nineteen and Basseterre to the Smithsonian institute year in music all these awards that you've won all these hit records. And yet today you're so modest that you still say, well, I'm not sure I've made it that to me. That's incredible to hear you say something like that. And maybe that's just the drive that you have to always want to do more. You know, because there's so many people out there. Right. Where they'll get a hit record. You tell me if you disagree with this or not. But maybe that's the reason why there are so many with all due respect so many one hit wonders out there because they get that hit record. Right. They get that hit single. And they think their life is made. And then they don't. Realize you don't keep working that hard. And have that drive. You might not get another hit album, right? That's for sure, you know, dry periods and everybody's including Korea. I know I had him. And it's gladly when you know, you you did something again, recording wise and people's ears. Oh, yeah. That's what I want to hear some hair. And it's. Is there again, right? End a long long time ago. And this is the lesson never given to me by my parents and watching them to you know. Everything. Nothing's really given. You earn thing. You know kinda on. Oh, let you do. You have to own your crafts, really work at it. And then, you know, then you begin to read. So you know, like, I said, I still think that has some things. That's very impressive that you're putting out an album effort glass. Five years. You mentioned having a dry period. How how long was your longest dry period? You would say. Being tired era. We know in a way. The blessing. There was a time that I had nightmare. I had my children. I was home with them. Enjoying that own bed instead being in hotel. Having Nate made knock on the door. You know, it was a period of some gave me time to reassess Warwick Dion. I'm going to give you a loaded question right now. And by the way, thank you so much for your time. And I want to plug this again because you're going to be doing some shows here at Bally's, and I'm gonna take my parents to see you because they love you. And I want to I want to ask you this because I'm only thirty eight years old, right? But I remember when I was a teenager, and I listened to alternative rock, right? That's what I grew up with. And my dad in the car would tell me, and my mom, you don't know what good music is back in the day. We used to listen to buddy, Holly and Elvis Presley and the big Bopper, and they named you as well. And now I feel like I'm saying that to younger people, right? I don't I don't like some of the music today. Now, look, there's I'm sure you would agree. There's some great artists out there a lot of them who haven't been discovered, but here's what I don't like Dion. And you're the best person. I don't like it. When someone does a show in Vegas. I won't name any names. But when someone gets paid. A lot of money to do a show, and they lip sync the entire show. I don't wanna see that. Right. And I I don't want to I want. That's not a concert to me. I want to hear a beautiful voice like yours. I want to hear great musicians. And luckily, there are people like you that are still touring. But am I wrong and feeling that way because I get I get a little angry when I think of some of these so-called musicians that can't sing do you ever think to yourself, man? I can't believe some of the money. Some of these younger people are making an don't sing they can't sing. I I have to agree with the Ed do I think it's kind of cheating. I think. I call it had Steffi. Like auto tune, for example, to what is supposed to be talent. And the ability to get people what they pay good money. No seats. Each year. I totally understand those that. Twenty four seven and has to catch it breath. You know, I've seen a lot of people do that. And still be able to get what they what they will say to do perform. I I don't understand. Let's thinking I don't and I've seen some of my era people do it. It's kinda surprised me a lot. I guess you can get away with what they did. And they certainly there are people in your error that lip sync I want I don't want you to out people. But that that's amazing to me. I yeah. Gosh know, I saw I saw Bob Seger perform recently. And he he's he's still got it. He's still pretty good. But Dion give me up. Give me a more modern performer who does it the right way, who's a natural talent who keeps working at and doesn't lip sync that you respect. Oh boy. Well, they typically honest with the I don't know. New new era singers. A performance. Let me think here, but they can take your time. You're not in a rush plenty of time. Oh, sure. Usher's fantastic. Yeah. See Tony Baxter and. Yeah. Toni Braxton's been around a long time. And you know, in fact, she she had a residency year in Vegas as well. Wonderful. Yeah. She is wonderful how how about Adele. I don't know a Dell and I know. Is out there. Right. I don't know what she doesn't perform one name that. I I certainly would like to bring up as Whitney Houston. And I know that your relationship with her over the years, and what a fantastic voice, right? What? And what do you? What do you make of that whole situation? Obviously, it's very sad that she's no longer with us. It's it's a terrible tragedy. But I mean, how about her voice and her talent when she was in her prime was there. Anybody better? Nope. Without a doubt. That's an absolute. No, nobody better. She encountered saying family that I am. We get singing family everybody in my family things. And the old saying that the apple doesn't fall that far tree. And they said, no, no question. Just a couple more quick questions for you Dion. And we appreciate your time. You're just joining us Dionne Warwick going to be performing at Bally's starting on April fourth. So every musician every songwriter has a different path. Right. I talked to some people that say they they think about lyrics in their sleeps. Right. I have some other people that say they're in the shower, and they just start singing a melody or tune. And then they record it. I mean, there's all sorts of different. You know, what has been your process over the years? I I'd love to pick your brain on that. How do you think of a melody and write a song Dionne Warwick's process of writing a song?.
