Every so often, the hospitality industry gives us a champion – a bright spark that lights up a room and makes everyone feel that little bit extra special just by being around them. Simon Lay – aka. Charles Bronson from the East – was such a man.

Ernie Johnson Jr.

There are just certain nuances of the game that cannot be defined by stats and that’s why you can’t rely on them. That’s why Popeye Jones was Charles Barkley’s biggest headache, not Kevin McHale. That’s why Big Country Reeves is the guy who ate Shaquille O’Neal alive.

Lenny Henry

My parents had this massive record player in the living room, a ‘blue spot grand’ they called it… it used up an entire rainforest to make this thing, and it had all these records in it. Some were rock, some were reggae, but a lot was blues – Ray Charles, Chuck Berry and all that stuff.

Dan Schneider

My TV comedy idols are the Charles brothers, who did ‘Cheers;’ Larry Gelbart, who did ‘MASH;’ and Larry David, who did ‘Seinfeld.’ When I was 6 or 7-years-old, I’d watch ‘Saturday Night Live’ and guys like John Belushi and Dan Akroyd became my on-screen heroes.

Yves Behar

I’ve been influenced by some of the greatest designers. Charles Eames. And Bruno Munari in the ’50s in Italy – when they had to retool the industry of war into an industry to help society. In a way, I’m influenced by designers that were there at a radical time of change.

I truly believe that we’re about to enter a second golden age of design. The first one was in the ’50s and ’60s, when designers like Raymond Loewy, Charles Eames, George Nelson and Dieter Rams were shepherds of the brands they were working with. They had influence over the products and how companies communicated and promoted themselves.

Xavier Woods

Xavier Woods

Earl Hebner used to call me ‘Tiger,’ so I went with the last name Woods because I thought it was funny. I’m a huge fan of X-Men and, just, intelligence in general, and the leader in charge is named Prof. Charles Xavier. I took Xavier from him and put together the two names.

Willie Nelson

Willie Nelson

My first western was ‘Death Hunt’ with Charles Bronson and Lee Marvin; that was where I learned to ride. The movie was based on a true story about a guy that eluded the Mounties in Canada. We were in Canada for six weeks riding horses.

Virginia Henley

I have always been drawn to the Restoration period of Charles II. I have a soft spot for Charles Stuart, who was always loving and kind to the opposite sex. The members of his court were fascinating, and Barbara Castlemaine was one of the greatest courtesans in history.

If anyone should be executed, it should be Charles Manson. Do I go around during the daytime, ‘Geez, I’m upset that he’s alive’? No, I don’t even think about him. I don’t think about this case.

Vincent Bugliosi

Vincent Bugliosi

I was at a book convention, in a cab. On one side of me was Arthur Schlesinger; on the other side was William Manchester – real heavyweights. All they were doing was asking me about Charles Manson.
