Never met JT but I agree with Repack's comments. Although Ringlatron is entitled to his opinion (as are we all!).
I have briefly met:
Ayrton Senna, Ian Botham & Jethro.
Viv Richards used to live a couple of doors down (when he played for Somerset).
One thing that I find is that all famous people are ultimately just people who are famous. And are therefore just as prone to bouts of selfishness and being a tw*t as we all are. I would take JT's career acheivments at face value and be done with it.
Apparently Adolf Hitler was quite a personable bloke and liked animals. So there!
Somerset, like 'Heartbeat' with newer cars!
