Now, the official Twitter account for Lee has released a new video in which the legend himself expresses how the love his fans have shown through the years is reciprocated:
“It’s so lucky to have fans. Fans who really care about you. And that’s the reason I care so much about the fans. Because they just… they make me feel so great. And there’s something, if you think about it, that is wonderful about somebody caring about you, as I care about them, whom you’ve never met. Who may live in another part of the world. But they care. And you have something in common. And occasionally, you contact each other. And this business of fans, I think is terrific. And I love them all.”

So many wonderful moments with Stan came spontaneously. As we were setting up the camera one day, he casually started talking about his fans. We know how much Stan meant to you, and we thought it would be nice for you to hear how much your support meant to him. pic.twitter.com/WTX8U1afLm
