I made a translation for my French site and asked Tony if I was allowed to use it. He immediately answered in the kindest way. As I thanked him, he e-mailed me again, and as he talks of us Ratfans and of Nick, I quote his words here:
"I'm amazed by the number of Nicholas Lea fans. I never knew he was so popular and followed. I've gotten so many e-mails from Nicholas Lea fans and fan sites, and everywhere. I'm shocked by it. I've done interviews with a lot of people, and no fan base has been strong than Nick's.
"I just checked your Live Community. What a nice group of people. They're very vocal and passionate.
"Here's a note about my interview with Nick that you might find fascinating: Before our interview, he asked me where I was from and asked how I was. I know it sounds simple, but most celebs don't do that. They are all business. He made an effort to listen and care and ask."
