Some of us are lucky and know who we are - and what will be written on our tombstones. Even at an early age, I knew it would say 'SONGWRITER' on mine. To put one's head in an objective position - a prerequisite to writing anything of substance - is a wonderful, magical thing. When a young person's good will and idealism clashes with the real world of random chaos and crudity, great art can be a catharsis. Or put another way, the rhythm and blues can often heal.
