I felt the anger starting in my toes and it came right out of my mouth, as loud as anything else I'd said on the stage, I looked out to the audience and said, 'Tell them we're busy!' And it got a round of applause. See more »

Trivia:

Kevin's maternal grandfather was the son of Swedish parents. Kevin's other ancestry includes English and Welsh. See more »
