I don’t know if he was aware of the magnitude of his presence but pretty much anybody who came into contact with him was intimidated by him, for the most part.  But he was just such a humble person, in a few lines of casual conversation he was able to make everyone feel okay.  Again, I don’t know how much of that was preplanned, or done on purpose, but I saw it happen a lot.  It may have just been a natural urge to put people at ease, it may not have had anything to do with celebrity.  But it definitely worked, in terms of just taking the intimidation factor down, and making people feel comfortable. – Rick Rubin
