Miles Davis anecdote

At one time, Miles was married to Cicely Tyson and, by virtue of that, was invited to dine with President Reagan at the White House. No one seemed to know who he was. During dinner chat, Nancy turned to him and said, “So, Mr. Tyson, what have you done with your life?”

“I changed the course of music four times.” replied Davis in a gravelly voice, “What have you done? Beside fucking the president?”
