Meet the Mayor: Guitar Center

Welcome to "Meet the Mayor," a segment in which we interview local Foursquare Mayors in their natural habitats.

Guitar Center
King Harry

Why are you the mayor here?
I have a company called Shattered Glass Audio. We produce amps and stompboxes for musicians at a lower cost, and I've been talking with the general manager, the staff, and some of the musicians here to test out some of the products.

So you're a king and a mayor. Would you ever want to be a president?
That would be too much. You can't please everybody all the time, but you can absolutely please and help the people around you. Now, would I like to be the Dalai Lama? Absolutely. A leader, not a president. One of my favorite mottos: "A smart man believes half of what he hears. A wise man knows which half to believe."

Is that an English accent I'm detecting?
I am English.

What's that like?
It's different. My first couple years in the US were a bit hard. There's a serious language discrepancy I encountered. A "rubber" in the UK is an eraser. Here, a "rubber" is a prophylactic. Making the first mistake in attempting to correct for that didn't go so well.
