Personal Quote:

When Rosanna got record of the year, which was a song very close to my heart, Elton John was the first guy in the audience who stood up and applauded. Elton John, to me, is on the level of The Beatles as far as talent and the legacy he's left. To be respected by even one person of that caliber filled my heart and just validated us in front of everybody. See more »
