I read the cute story of how Orbison met John Lennon

a manager went to introduce them and Roy responded "what in the heck is a beatle?" to which John tapped him on the shoulder and said "I am" or something like that

I'm impressed by Orbison's ability to phonetically differentiate between "Beatle" and "Beetle".

Roy Orbison would be equally impressed by your inability to detect a split infinitive.

There is nothing wrong with split infinitives.
