Roland Kent LaVoie (Lobo) : I was singing from my heart about how hard it is to just be friends with someone whom you’ve had deep feelings for. It wasn’t expected to be that big of a hit. When it happened, I became somehow a legitimate act. Requests for tours came in, and the pressures got to me. It was really more than I was capable of handling. Whether consciously or not, I all of a suddent just stopped. It wasn’t worth it. I wasn’t happy. I realised I had to maintain myself. I retreated.

I could only take it so far emotionally. I did as much as I could, being a closet star. I became as much as I could without having tobe on television and having to be a celebrity.
