    Good article, especially the end:

    I’ve played 'Born to Run,' many, many times...But the key is, you have to approach it not as a repetition but as a renewal...You have a chance of renewing the emotion and the spirit in that music on a nightly basis. That’s the place I work to get to every night when I’m onstage. I think that if the foundation of what you’ve built is built well, you’ll be able to inhabit it on a nightly basis and your audience will come in and it will feel like they’re seeing it for the first time. (laughs) That’s my plan, anyway.​

    Why did they pose him, though, with a Strat Jazzmaster? [Thanks, hemingway, for the correction below.]

    I do like the fact that he took the time to write a letter and clarify.

    It's cute the he spelled Jimi's name wrong UNLESS he knows something I don't.

    He's a good guy really.

    That's brilliant!

    And he's right - there are two kinds of people in the world - 'S' types, and 'T' types...
