Personal Quote:

[on persuading Frank Sinatra to re-record some of his signature songs] I reminded Frank that while Laurence Olivier had performed Shakesepeare in his twenties, the readings he did when he was in his sixties gave them new meaning. I spoke with conviction. 'Don't my children and your grandchildren deserve to hear the way you're interpreting your classic songs now?'. See more »

He has 33 Grammy nominations, 14 Grammy Awards, and an Emmy. See more »
