If you're looking for an artist whose appeal spans generations, look no further than Kenny Rogers. Born in 1938, he nevertheless kept the young contestants of TV talent show American Idol in thrall when, in 2006, he passed on half a century of entertainment wisdom. A US chart record of more than 70 singles in various genres tells the story, and the good news is the story goes on. Ask Kenny Rogers the secret of his long-lasting career and he'll tell you this: "People survive longer if they love what they're doing - and I really, really love what I'm doing." You will, too!
