    It can be hard for me to even wrap my mind around Brian Eno - he's way up there in the 20th century musical pantheon for me and it can be hard to fathom he is a real person sometimes!

    I always enjoy what he has to say about creativity. Right now our culture is fascinated with the "triple threat", "renaissance man" type of artist/leader/thinker and I think it really intimidates a lot of us.

    It's awesome to hear such a distinct answer to those fears from a legend like Eno.
