“What I get about you is that from a young age you were bright, you were precocious, you saw things that most people couldn’t see, and you weren’t afraid to say things that other people were afraid to say. You watched the Beatles being successful, and unlike others who wanted to be The Beatles, you said ‘I want to be the person behind the Beatles’. You think differently.
