I met "The great one" at a Radio Convention in Minneapolis a few years ago. He was promoting the latest single from "Didn't you used to be..." I must say he was a decent guy under the circumstances. It was very HOT in the suite, there was a lot of people trying to get autographs, and a lot of these people had a lot to drink that night. He autographed a black and white 8 by 10 and I tried to speak to him but it was too noisy to carry a conversation for very long.He was at the suite for about an hour but had to leave...He looked VERY tired.
