Meet the Captain

“That he doesn’t look or act the part of a megamillionaire is typical Stirling. He is, as he would hope, more than the sum of his wealth. The fat, cheery waiter who made change for him and has just ordered his steak dinner calls out “C-6, Mr. Stirling.” “Fantastic,” says Stirling. He hits the keys and out comes Billy Joel singing, “You may be right, I may be crazy.” Next comes Presley himself with a rock and gospel version of “America the Beautiful.” Another clue. If a man can paint a picture of himself by punching the buttons on a jukebox, Stirling is doing it.”

Amy Zierler – Atlantic Insight – October 1980
