“I used to go to Bourbon Street when I was a kid and there would be club after club after club of people who were around when the music started. I mean these are legendary, maybe not so well known, but legendary musicians.” -Harry Connick, Jr.
“I’m not a movie star. People know me, but they don’t necessarily know what they know me for. I get recognised, but it’s not like Justin Bieber. It’s a nice thing, people are cool.” -Harry Connick, Jr.
