Chris de Burgh on fame, privacy and fans

I have always been very polite to my fans as long as they understand that there are public moments and private moments. Even on tour I demand my privacy, particularly if I am tired. And I can’t be available to all people all of the time. But I never forget my manners and so far I don’t think I have told anybody to f… off or words to that effect, although there have been times when I have been sorely tempted, I can assure you. But I just feel sorry for people who become obsessed with public figures. And I hope that eventually they see that their behaviour is just not compatible with social connections. Thanks.
