"He was amazingly informed about Aids and he treated us with such kindness. I had so much respect for him. One of the old adages in life is never judge someone until you meet them. I found him charming. I found him well informed. And I found him determined to do something about the Aids situation. So I changed my opinion of him. I learned a lesson." Sir Elton John on his first meeting with former U.S. President George W. Bush.
