We felt we had made a record worth shouting about and when people heard it, they reacted in a similar way. When we released our first album, even the most moderate success was something to get really excited about. Twenty five years later I still get excited but I also feel a huge sense of humility. This really shouldn't be happening. I would have been happy just to have had a record deal at this point.
--- I understand that many years later when their album is successful he not only feels happy, but he also feels humility and he shouldn't feel it (this really shouldn't be happening). And he continues that: Today I should be happy that I have a record deal, not to mention a hit record.
Is my interpretation pretty much correct?
Hmm, strange, because in the original text he says: Twenty five years later, not ago.
I understand it's twenty five years since they released their first album.
I think I would also say: at that point - if I were referring to the past instead of at this point.
