OK, Sarah sent this to me. Billy Boyd really is just too cute.
The song in Return of the King had to be done in this way but to be able to meet up with Howard Shore to make sure the key was right for his soundtrack led to one of the best days of my career. Howard was recording in Abbey Road studios in London , which is where the Beatles recorded all their albums, and I was asked to record the song there! In the same studio The Beatles played "All You Need Is Love" for the first worldwide satellite broadcast. A real treat for me and another unforgettable day in the making of Lord Of The rings. This was all recorded by one of the documentary crews so hopefully it will appear on a DVD sometime.

Then he mentions one of our favorite directors.
There are many well-known “celebrities” who inspire me as well. John Lennon, Martin Luther King, Ben Harper, Spike Milligan, Bill Forsyth, Shakespeare, Groucho Marx, Stanley Kubrick, Tom Yorke the list could go on and on but looking back at it I suppose the common denominator is people who live lives their way and don't feel too much pressure to conform to a norm.
