    Didn't he use to run away from them in fear during the walkovers?

    It was a pretty good interview. The best parts were getting inside the heads of Ant and Jimmy and knowing what they wanted to say about Liberace, but couldn't and I cracked up when Ant bombed with that Godfather line. I'm just glad he didn't bring up politics, because he is so far left Ant would have to argue with him, but he probably wouldn't.

    I thought Tony was a pretty good sport all things considered. The dude is a fucking legend after all.

    Am I the only (young) one that does not see this guy as a legend? Pavarotti is a legendary opera singer, but I couldn't give a fuck about him either. I guess I am just not old enough to appreciate how big of a get this guy really is.

    I was about to say that I don't even know who he is, but after looking him up on Google Image Search, I've definitely seen him before.

    Not so much that people younger than say, 50 like or listen to the guy, but people have to respect the body of work.

    Just because you've never heard of someone or don't care for their work doesn't mean they're not a legend or command respect; which Tony Bennett totally does (and as Pavarotti did).

    Like I said, maybe I am just too young to appreciate how big of a deal this guy really is.

    Heh. And maybe I'm too old ... to appreciate him either. Oh well, YMMV.

    His first hit was in 1951, 12 years before the Beatles hit!! By God, he sang at the opening of the Triborough Bridge with Mayor LaGuardia. Look it up on Wiki. Probably the longest tenure of any "pop" singer, including Sinatra. I saw him live with my Dad in a 2,000 seat venue about 15 years ago. I was blown away; just him and his pianist, and no microphone. Maybe the best purest voice I have ever heard. Like it or not youngins', truly a Legend of the first degree. That's why the Boys were saying, maybe the biggest iconic guest they have ever had?? I think Carlin and him are indeed the biggest, but Bennett probably eeks out George on the famous scale, due to his longevity.
