Craziest fan moment? Most fun fan moment? 

I had a wonderful fan who once sent me an alpaca hat all the way from Peru, where he’d gone to volunteer in a remote village because he was inspired by Legend to do good. That’s probably one of the sweetest fan moments I’ve experienced. A really fun fan moment was when a fan gave me a copy of Legend that he had turned into a functional clock! How cool is that?!
