The French Revolution was a kind of 21st-century moment in the heart of the 18th century – and Alex Dumas, outstanding though he was, could never have risen the way he did if not for that. The French Revolution was the American Revolution on steroids.

Of course David Moyes is going to come under scrutiny because he’s taken over from a legend in Sir Alex Ferguson and they’ve made their worst start to a season in 24 years.

I honestly think that with our generation – Alex Wang, Prabal Gurung, Jason Wu, Christian Cota, Robert Geller – there’s a different expectation of what our behavior should be.

Michael and Alex, I love you. And we’re going to have the biggest celebration when you get home.

Susan Smith

Way back before the ‘Alex Barnaby’ series was first published, we were talking with Dark Horse then about making it into a graphic novel of some sort. We just couldn’t get it together at the time; we had too many projects going on. We weren’t sure how we wanted to bring it forward.

Everyone has someone they looked up to. Mine was Mickey Mantle. For Alex Rodriguez to idolize me coming up, that makes me feel very good.

The Sensational Alex Harvey Band – those guys were great.

You know, I remember watching Morgan Freeman when he did the two Alex Cross movies, and he’s so confident that he’s going to knock the scene dead. And I’m really confident that I can tell a good story now, so I just don’t worry about things.

No one really sees pro athletes behind the scenes. They don’t know how hard they work. They don’t see how you work on the basics. They couldn’t possibly know. You wouldn’t think that someone who hits like Alex Rodriguez needs to use a tee every day. But that’s how he stayed on top of it.

Do I feel I should have been given more time? Of course I do. To go to a club like Manchester United and follow someone like Sir Alex after the time he had been there, to stay for ten months… It couldn’t be a revolution at Manchester United; it had to be evolution. It had to take time.

The best thing for me is the amount of DMs and people hitting me up every day saying, ‘Your music is providing me with answers.’ That blows my mind, because that’s what Alex Turner and Eminem were for me.

Alex Kurtzman – he’s one of the nicest guys.

There is no doubt that my former manager Sir Alex exerted an influence over some referees. He was the master of dropping a comment into his Friday press conference – for instance, how long it had been since we had been given a penalty, or the treatment meted out to a player like Cristiano Ronaldo.

People often talk about George Best and Alex Higgins as two similar personalities… but the truth is that Best did not like Alex.

Arsenal needs Arsene Wenger, but also Arsene Wenger needs Arsenal. For me, he will die at Arsenal. He is like Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United. After you think about Ferguson and United, you then think about Wenger and Arsenal.

Alex Poots has always made a bridge between highly experimental and the mainstream.

Portraying Alex Summers, I want to look as athletic as his character is in the comics.

Rush and guitarist Alex Lifeson are among my biggest influences.

I won’t say I’ve never felt in Alex Salmond’s shadow, but latterly, when Alex was leader, I didn’t. It’s more about my awareness of the fact I became First Minister during a parliamentary term. That means you’re First Minister, but you haven‘t been elected in your own right as First Minister.

It was funny because on the day that I joined the club, the newspaper that broke the news was one that people don’t always trust or believe. Then, when I signed, and there were pictures of me and Sir Alex Ferguson, people believed it.

I’m very close to Sir Alex and have a lot of respect for him, and a lot of respect for myself.

When I was singing Jamie‘s Cryin’, people were going out of their mind because it was the first time they got to see Eddie, Michael and Alex play those songs. That was a thrill.

My children, Michael and Alex, are with our Heavenly Father now, and I know that they will never be hurt again. As a mom, that means more than words could ever say.

Susan Smith

John Higgins
