Trivia:

Doesn't sight-read music, and actually panicked when asked to do a recording session for John Lennon and expected Lennon to pass out horn charts. As it turned out, Lennon merely passed copies of his lyrics (with chords written in) around to the session players; he couldn't sight-read music either. See more »
