Musical icons unleash their on-stage personas to the fullest extent for throngs of rabid fans. However, those same larger-than-life characters often act very differently behind the scenes.

As Cooper once said about the fateful meeting:

Here comes this nice old man in a white suit. Suddenly I realize that this is the Hannibal Lecter of chickens.

The irony of the two of us being in the same room at the same time was not lost on either me or the Colonel.
