Sometime around 1999 I discovered this interview with David Torn. Later his example helped me a lot when I became partially deaf due to an internal ear infection. He will probably never know what his example meant to me and I will never be able to thank him enough.
I know how much guts it takes to overcome a situation like this and admire David for his courage in an infinitely more serious situation. Not to mention his music.
And now he plays the multiac oud too!
