# Quote 1 In the '70s, '60s, '80s, everybody knew what was in the charts. 2 I stopped wearing an earring about 15 years ago. Now that I'm a grandfather, I'm not comfortable with it anymore. [The Guardian, Nov. 27, 2009] 3 A very warm and honest person and a performer of great depth, not really an introvert but where would we be without Gary Glitter, our leader?
