One of my earliest chess influences was grandmaster Jude Acers (whom I met at age 15), aka "The Man in the Red Beret" in New Orleans.
Jude was once roommates with Janis Joplin:
"Funny, funny Jude. You play with little pieces all day long, and you know what? You’ll live to be an old, old man someday. And here I am."
– Janis Joplin
