That s*** is weak, man. I'm just sayin'.
He's probably a shy guy at heart - spending all those years holed up in practice rooms building up his terrifying skill base. It's not his fault that so many people think he's the bee's knees.

I agree that you'd think he'd get used to it and settle down but creative people are often quirky (that's me speaking as a perfectly normal pillow of society).

How about Keith Jarrett and his reaction to people taking photos? My mother was a writer and as mad as a meat axe. Or just look around this place with its myriad eccentrics and kooks ... I love it ... an oasis of harmless lunacy in a vast desert of uninspiring, sensible, stolid conservative people :)
