First of all, the guy was all hyped up about performing to gazillions of people, was pressed for time and then gets asked this stupid question. He certainly wasn't in the frame of mind to be asked some lame question that didn't even make any sense to begin with. Even then he held his temper and was considerate of the man's feelings. It kind of sounds to me like there must have been something about the man's demeanor that put him off. Still he gave him a chance.
