They say never meet your idols, and I can appreciate the underlying wisdom in that, though it has always struck me as being a bit of a joyless and dour belief. Definitely a very British one, as well.
Statements like this tend to make my hackles rise. I know within my heart of hearts that even if my hero spat on my shoe, stole my girlfriend and then drop-kicked me into moving traffic, I would still rather take the chance than fear that they would not live up to my expectations. I don’t mind my bubble being burst every now and again, and – more to the point – what if “they” are wrong? What if by some stratospheric twist of fate the person you have revered for countless years actually proves to be every bit the legend you believed he or she was all along?
