His fanbase. Period!!He wouldn't be who his is today without them. They paid for his theremin, 2nd hit, movie. They paid dearly for his failed around the world tour in 2006 and still support him!!
- His nuts getting cracked on a guitar amp stack on TV. This moment won him many fans and told the music press he was a deranged loony. He got signed to Polydor (major label back then) soon after this.
