W: Charles, among other things, you are regarded as one of the America's great masters of the Blues — a musical idiom does essentially about loss, particularly the loss of romantic love. Why does love die?
M: People often get into love affairs because they have unrealistic expectations about somebody. Then when the person doesn't turn out to be who they thought he or she was, they start thinking "maybe I can change him or her." That kind of thinking is a mistake. Because when the dust settles, people are going to be pretty much what they are. It's a rare thing for anybody to be able to change who they really are. And this creates a lot of problems.
男：人们在对某人有不切实际的期望时通常会陷入爱河 。当他们发现对方不是他/她所想的那样时，他们就开始想去改变对方 。这种想法是错误的 。因为当一切尘埃落定以后，人们还会是他们以前的样子 。改变一个人是很难的事情 。这会引发很多问题 。
W: At 62, you continue to spend a large percentage of your life touring. What appeals to you about life on the road?
M: Music. I don't especially love life on the road, But I figure if you are lucky enough to be able to do what you truly love doing, you've got the ultimate in life.
男：音乐 。我并不是特别喜欢在巡回中度过人生 。不过我认为，如果足够幸运，能从事你真正喜爱的事情，那就是生命中最好的事情 。
W: What's the most widely-held misconception about the life of a famous musician?
M: People think it's all glamour. Actually we have the same trouble as they do. Playing music doesn't mean life treats you any better.
男：人们认为一切都充满魅力 。其实，我们也会遇到普通人遇到的问题 。从事音乐事业并不意味着生活会对你更好 。
W: How do you feel about being recognized everywhere you go?
M: You'd think I'd be used to it by now. But I still find it fascinating. You go to a little town in Japan, where nobody speaks English, yet they know you on site and know all your music. I'm still amazed by the love people express for me and by music.
男：你一定认为我现在已经习惯这种状态了 。不过我现在依然觉得这令人着迷 。在日本的一个小城镇，那里可能没有人会说英语，可是他们通过网络认识了你，而且知道你的所有音乐作品 。我仍然会对人们的喜爱和音乐感到惊讶 。
