Good morning James. Not being a Beatles fan, I had no clue who this guy is. But must admit, he is a talented fellow. Enjoy your day.

It sounds like he always stays busy and has plenty to keep him occupied.  I love that he beat the media, haha.

Any interview with John Lennon was worth watching! I wonder if the Asher middle name means he is related Jane Asher (former GF of Paul McCartney)??

Also...I was nowhere near that level of 14 and I wouldn't expect anyone to be that amazing . That makes it doubly  impressive!
