Lionel Vincent shook hands with Nelson Mandela, personally requested to play music for him to be the first music he heard after being released from his 27 year incarceration. he tells me:
"wisdom, the ability to apply knowledge accurately, your first thought is the best thought, hate no-one, don't listen to those trying to drag you down, listen to the good voice within, for you are a great person, i know this. For a person like you the woman of your dreams will walk right into your life"
he then lends me a book "the wisdom of insecurities" after we have a long morning in a bar till dawn playing pool surrounded by cheap young hookers, drinking expensive cheap rum and listening to i5 quarter rumble from the house speakers.
