Quest Quips

blog devoted to CNN International Business anchor, Richard Quest, who looks like a cross between Roger Daltry and a Muppet. You have to see him to believe him...

So let it out and let it in, hey, Richard, begin/
You're waiting for someone to perform with/And don't you know that it's just you, hey, Richard you'll do!/, the movement you need is on your shoulder

Richard was the first to tell us about the Sing Along planned for Queen Elizabeth II of Britain's Golden Jubilee Celebration. Seeing as how the Sing Along came off without a hitch on June 3rd, let's revisit Richard's report to CNN International in April 2002

RICHARD QUEST: Bill, before we go, Sandy[a guest] and me, come in a little closer, we've got to sort of finish because -- and, Bill, you're not that young so you can join in as well. You remember this...

BILL HEMMER: I am going to leave that to you actually, Richard. Go for it.

QUEST: All right. On the count of one, two, three.


Come on, Bill. Help us out here. We're struggling.

HEMMER: : I can't carry a tune if my life depended on it, and you are certainly not going to get me do it.

QUEST: No. Well, let me tell you this. The only time you are going to get me singing besides this will be in the bathroom and we are certainly not doing that on television.

HEMMER: Well, you have the trombone down, though. That's for sure. Hey, thank you, Richard. Enjoy it, OK. And we will look forward to that sing-along and see how the rest of Britain responds.

QUEST: Thank you very much.

HEMMER: You got it. Richard Quest, he will be the first in line with his hand raised and ready to sing, I am sure.

Did anyone see Richard singing on-camera on June 3rd? Let me know.
