    I read a thread on this forum a while ago about an American guy who was the son of a music star, he was an advisor to President Obama, did a JD and is now doing a PhD at Oxford... BUT I can't remember his name! Anybody know it?

    This must be the first time I've heard Woody Allen described as a rock star.

    Reading how much that guy has achieved has made me feel incredibly inadequate, especially considering that he's just over a year older than I am. Although at least my name isn't Satchel.

    Ah, but then again he has achieved all that despite being named after a leather bag.

    Oops. I knew the guy had a famous dad but I couldn't remember what he was famous for.
