Personal Quote:

[when asked about the happiest day of his life] August 8th, 1980. That was the day Lynne and I got married. The only thing that spoiled it was that the man in the registry office had to go and make a feeble joke by asking which one of us was the bride. See more »

Trivia:

Met his wife, Lynne, at age 15. See more »
