“The idea that John and George could race into a strip club and see this very odd man singing…

Paul Gambaccini


“You think, if you try to deconstruct this, it would be terrible…

…but in fact, put it all together and it works. As a matter of fact it is more than that, it is magical.”
Paul Gambaccini
