Those guys are as smart as I always assumed they were. It really is cool when I see writing by famous musicians, and they write just like I do, with similar thought processes to me, and then I realize the famous musicians weren't born in 1940 anymore, they're kids/were kids and grew up with the same cultural influences as me, more or less, and it's amazing. Guys like Bono have been trying for relevance for years, but for certain types and generations of musicians -- looking at Guante -- it's effortless, the understanding and empathy is effortless.

God, I sound like I'm stoned. I have no idea how to put this. Great letter regardless.
