I had a similar, though not physically violent experience with him 25 years ago when I produced the "Hollywood Babylon" party (my first) and insisted that he be included, and paid.
So, its just a coming of age experience for young divae in training, methinks. BTW anyone ever heard the story of he and Maya Deren levitating refrigerators at each other? Wish I could remember the details..
Regardless, I still think "L'eau de Artifice" is the most brilliant short film ever made.
And I too am delighted you are coming home! Mwah!
