On the absence of touring: “I never get to play enough anymore. It’s pretty bad actually, really sad. I miss it a whole lot. It’s a chore to get on the road — a few of the guys don’t want to do it — but it’s business, and if you can make a living out of it, you’ve got to do it.” — “The Rewards of Rock Stardom” by Jim Sullivan, The Boston Globe, November 1, 1986

That quote (along with a couple others from the same interview) broke my heart for him! So very glad he had those later years of playing out more.

I agree. That interview gave a clearer window into what he was thinking and feeling at the time and it’s kind of painful to read, knowing how things ended up playing out.
