John Tavener

Richard L loves this quote …—But Tavener was already famous before the 1980s. He was signed to the Beatles’s Apple label in the late 60s (“I was less surprised at John Lennon’s enthusiasm, but I was surprised at Ringo’s”, he later said)

—In fact the story goes that Tavener’s brother ran a building firm that was doing some work for Ringo, and that’s how the connection came about
