It's surprisingly good--and not-weird. There is a famous speech that he gave at some award thing--Grammy awards maybe--that is quite weird. But it is funny that he felt obliged to tell us that Shakespeare is a "great literary figure." Maybe he thought they might not have heard of Shakespeare in Sweden. (Thanks to Stu for pointing this out to me.)
Oh, here's the weird one: 1991 Grammy awards. Not exactly a speech, just a...remark.
