I think how injuries affected rock musicians would make an interesting thesis. I’ve read that Brian Eno came up with the idea to make ambient albums after he was in a car crash. He was recuperating in the hospital and had a classical record playing very low and he couldn’t get up to turn it up and thus heard music in a new way. Frank Zappa was pushed off a stage by a deranged fan and was stuck in a wheelchair for one of his most prolific years (not to mention the affect the injury had on his voice as he had his larynx crushed, causing his voice to drop a third). There’s the Bob Dylan motorcycle incident which is shrouded in mystery in usual Dylan fashion. etc etc
I had a note in my phone called Obama’s number and I was trying to figure out what it is and then I realized it’s my social security number.
