Have no clue, Steve. He might be a Beefeater, a member of the British Parliament or someone getting a degree!

I thought he usually asked permission. Almost all artists have been willing to give it. One notable exception - the little purple guy (Prince) wouldn't give permission.

That's right, I forgot about that one. And then there is MJ, who gave Al use of the "Thriller" sets for "Eat It" and the other parody he did but I can't remember.

That guy looks vaguely familiar. Can't put a name to the face though. Judging from what he is wearing, I reckon he is either a graduate, honorary graduate, or speaker at a graduation, but that hat ain't a normal graduation hat.
Must be a European graduation hat.
