Toyah Willcox may have enjoyed most of her chart success in the 1980s but anybody who thinks she has slowed since then has not been paying attention.
This year, for instance, she has been involved in four feature films and has added regular TV work to her multi-faceted repertoire, which has encompassed everything from Quadrophenia and Casualty to Doctor Who and I'm A Celebrity.
Yet, much as she enjoys appearing on the screen, Toyah remains in love with rock music.
Next week, she and her band will bring such hits as It's a Mystery and I Want to Be Free to Stonehaven Town Hall for a brace of concerts on September 18 and 19.
Then she'll be at the Gardyne Theatre in Dundee on September 20.
Toyah spoke to STV about how she was relishing being on the road again.
She said: "I've never been to Stonehaven before but I've Googled it. I've seen it's by the sea and it has a great reputation for music.
"I'll be playing songs from a period which stretches back over the last 37 years and there's a lot of material to pack in.
"People sometimes ask if I'm going to retire, but what's the point of that? I love what I'm doing and it's a joy to walk out in front of an audience and perform for them.
"I never felt as if I was stuck in the 1980s, and I'm not. I've always wanted to explore new things and go to new places."
Toyah has never understood those musicians who stop playing their own hits or even distance themselves from past material.
After all, as she declared, if the fans expect to hear these hits, who is she to trample on their dreams?
She added: "It's always great to strike up a connection between yourself and the audience. It's one of the best things about concerts.
"Whenever I've been to Scotland in the past, the fans have been very loyal, very enthusiastic and you feel as if you are growing up with them.
"They want to dance, they want to rock and I'm sure it will be exactly the same in Stonehaven and Dundee."
