As he signed it (on the A-side, whoops) he smilingly said something brief and light-heartedly self-effacing about his vocal contributions. If I hadn't been standing about 3 inches from him I wouldn't have caught what he said; but he had a deep, strong voice, so it's just a volume issue apparently. ("Turn the knobs to 11, Johnny!")
I've always thought that I'd be afraid to meet John, because I can never understand what he's saying(on screen). British accent, on top of mumbling, and don't old drunks slur a bit, too? "Huff huff, bluh bluh ya ya huh". Me>, "Well thank you, John. Nice meeting you". (I walk away completely confused with anything he just said)

Is it really that difficult to be articulate?
