john's influences

This is for John. In your whole life, since childhood to now, who's been the person who has inspired you the most a) as a musician, b) as an actor, c) as a man (father, husband, etc.) Dara

JT: "Well the two figures that loom the largest in my musical upbringing are John Lennon and the Beatles, but John in particular, and Bowie. Their achievements just set the pace for what is possible for somebody like me... and they're tough acts to follow. As an actor, I really never thought about acting to the extent that there is an actor out there who really influenced me. As a man... maybe Winston Churchill. "
