I only saw him once in my life,and it was a pleasure. I was in my 20's. His name has been part of my life ever since. This was in tha 70's when living in London. A friend advised me to see him and he welcomed me at his home. I sang a venezuelan song for him and he recorded it! Then he gave me advise on how to pronounce my Spanish words clearly and to project my voice and all!! A master class just for me! I have always kept this lovely memory in my heart! I wished I had contacted him long ago!Anyway! He's in my heart!!
Thank you, John!!
