It must be wonderful to come back to this kind of success and acceptance after 40-plus years.

It's been a long time coming, because we haven't been around for a while. It's not like we kept popping up every ten years and jumped up and down. We have been away for a long time, and here we are, stronger than ever, and every one of the reviews has been great, and every one of the fans — we call them friends, really — shows up in droves, and they're just overwhelmed. It's just a blessing.

So what was it like during the rehearsals?

Relearning your songs, you can become lazy after so many years. But we really made sure that we play the songs the way the people heard them on the records. There's nothing worse than hearing a sloppy version of a hit you've heard so many times. You want to hear the guitar solo the way you heard it originally. We try to nail every single nuance. It's not karaoke. It's the real deal. We're proud of what we're doing; it belongs to us. We're not a cover band. It's the Rascals covering the Rascals.

The title Once Upon a Dream was the title of a Rascals album.

It certainly was. It's based upon what it was... a dream. Felix would say to us, "The Beatles are the greatest thing, but the next big band will come from New York, and we'll be that band."
