“But you’ve got to remember, John and I knew each other when we were teenagers. We listened to the same records. We grew up to those records. We wore the same clothes. We admired the same kind of people. We had the same tastes. That informed the whole business. John and I were like twins. To find someone like that is pretty impossible.

I just closed the door and he was crying – he’d lost his best friend.” - Joe Reddington
