It has revolutionized the show business at the time. It has been an example for all of us, it has us all inspired. I saw it for the first time when I was still in college. It came from the circus, he was part of that world, a world that is excessively courageous, with suffering extraordinary, but when they are on stage, make believe that everything is easy. Johnny was part of that world ! I had a great admiration for him. It is an extraordinary interpreter. I refer to this because he is there and he will always be there. Person will never forget”.
