there is an old story that goes something like.......
some young musicians were talking to Elvin and asking him how the Coltrane group plays together so well and with such intensity.....and Elving replied
....you gotta be willing to die with a mother f***er
the young guys all laughed for a bit and looked to Elvin for the punch line.....only to realize he was dead serious
love that story
