“It’s like this when you fall hard for a musician. It’s a crush with religious overtones. You listen to the songs and you memorize the words and the notes and this is a form of prayer. You attend the shows and this is the liturgy. You’re interested in relics — guitar picks, set lists, the sweaty napkin applied to His brow. You set up shrines in your room. It’s not just about the music. It’s about who you are when you listen to the music and who you wish to be and the way a particular song can bridge that gap, can make you feel the abrupt thrill of absolute faith.” – Steve Almond, “Rock and Roll Will Save Your Life; A Book by and for the Fanatics among Us”.
