I remember the first time I interviewed one of my musical idols, Slash. I called him at about 5 in the afternoon and he complained that he had to wake up specifically to talk to me, but once we started going he was one of the most sincere and articulate subjects I've ever had the pleasure of talking to. We did the interview over the phone and when I met him later that night and told him how much I enjoyed talking to him, I'm pretty sure he didn't remember our conversation at all but was still gracious and friendly. That's just the kind of guy Slash is, I guess.
