I don’t know how to say this. Bear with me while I get myself together.
Luke Schenn has admitted recently that he doesn’t know the names of any of the Beatles. Schenn had taken in a performance of Cirque du Soleil’s “Love”, which is based on the music of the Beatles, playing at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas. Afterwards, Schenn was asked by an inquisitive reporter if he could name any of the Beatles. “No, not even close,” admitted the young Toronto Maple Leaf’s star.
How can this be? Or, the question is, do most 20 year’s old not know the names of the Beatles?
Say for the sake of argument that he’s never heard of George Harrison and Ringo Starr because he’s young. But surely he’s heard the names Paul McCartney and John Lennon. Or maybe just Paul McCartney, because he’s still out there working. John was killed in 1980, nine years before Schenn was born, but you have to think that Schenn would’ve at least heard the name growing up.
I’m having a hard time with this.
I suppose there’s only one real explanation. He’s a Leaf.
