Factoid from Mavis Staples...apparently during the civil rights demonstrations in the early 60s,  Bob Dylan and Mavis were quite the item...even contemplated marriage...pretty cool I'd say !
 The ultimate connection is between a performer and its' audience!

“There is nothing more to be said or to be done tonight, so hand me over my violin and let us try to forget for half an hour the miserable weather and the still more miserable ways of our fellowmen.”

― Arthur Conan Doyle
 
The gorgeous “Song to the Moon” arranged for violin (as opposed to voice) – it’s an excerpt from Dvořák’s opera, Rusalka

“I have an aversion to being mislabelled. Here's a label I'd accept: I'm an 'individual.' I'm someone who can't follow, and doesn't want to lead.”

Some lyrics I like from a master of evocative metaphor, Mr Less-is-more – Jeffrey Foucault
 
I saw you out there
In the starlight and static
Singing like the spark
On a mile of coiled wire
But you looked so lonely
Like no one was ever lonely
And I wanted to be
Lonely too

When it's not always raining there'll be days like this
When there's no one complaining there'll be days like this
When everything falls into place like the flick of a switch
Well my mama told me there'll be days like this

-Van Morrison
, from "Days Like This". There could always be more of 'em!  Cool

Lifted from the following link - https://www.bbc.co.uk/music/articles/a84...1b7d94293f

"While the tales of backstage excess have cast a long shadow over the reputations of 1970s rock gods like Led Zeppelin, the truth is far more prosaic these days, as Robert Plant explained to Radio 2: "I've never really been one for diva demands. We were always too busy having a good time to get hung up about anything. It's not very rock 'n' roll, but I like to look my best going on stage."
 
With that in mind, he has taken matters into his own hands, asking for a simple iron and ironing board, so he can flatten his creases before taking to the stage: "I find ironing helps get me in the mood before I perform.
 
"I've heard Keith Richards and Mick Jagger won't go on stage unless they've had a shepherd's pie. I don't go in for all that nonsense."

Who knew???
