I litterly just heard about while listening to a Tim Ferris podcast where was interviewing Rick
I ordered the Audiobook about 15 mins ago (because Rick does the narration...the only type I get)

Great quote from that podcast Rubin when discussing the book and how it has nothing about any of the artists he worked with
"I want it to be a forever book....I want it to be able to live outside of time"

BTW there were no books available when I clicked on it


Found another one...and tried to order, but it won't ship to VA?

Probably should just wait until he does a US book tour

Bought a Colin Melon novel on eBay "Wildwood" for $5.  It ended up being autographed by him and his wife Carson Ellis who illustrated the book.

I guess I don't understand autographed stuff. I mean these are talented people with cool jobs. Maybe more talented than we are. Maybe with better jobs than we have. Maybe they even have more money, or possibly not. But whatever.

It all feels like idol worship to me. I'm not even sure I'd like those people if I met them.

They say “Never meet your heroes,” and I can tell you from experience that it’s good advice. I’ve met all of my idols, and I’ve been disappointed by every single one.

There’s always people who feel this way. You are not alone.

I have no interest in explaining it to you. People never say “Oh yeah I see that makes sense.” They have their view and are dug in. Either you think it’s cool or you don’t and that’s fine.

not sure how that fits in... are you saying that 100% of the artists you like are great people who you'd like if you met them (and have liked 100% of the ones you have met?)

Erm, no. I'm not sure how you got that. I was saying that just because they're "famous" enough to give away autographs has no bearing on whether or not I'd like any of them IRL. Doesn't matter if I like their music/art/writing or not.
