“My parents split up when my twin sister and I were about three or four years old. My mother had to go to Canada to find a new home for us. And so we lived for six months with my father. We came from a mother, when there were a lot of rules and was very strict, to a guy, there were absolutely no rules,” said the 52-Year-old the circumstances of the times.
“He [father Donald, op. d. Red.] drove my sister and me in this beautiful, red Ferrari (built in 1959), he had won her in a Poker game, to the Kindergarten. No child seats, no nothing. Two seats, three people. And he had this big bushy Beard, really long hair and this cool leather jacket. I was about five years old, and I knew that he was different. I realized it is because as the other parents looked at him. I loved it and I loved the car,” told Sutherland junior to the delight of the audience.
And the only plate that his father had in this time, had been said Bob-Dylan-Album.
