I like his honesty, and his attitude to life, he’s not scared to acknowledge it's underbelly, never has been, and also, he knows when to stop doing things.

This naivity is so essential in creativity.

Sh*t we been through in life going through in life is also so essential in creativity
although we can completely shut down when the sh*t is too much.

Getting bogged down by becoming too knowing is when we make ourselves stuck in quicksand.

Yes, it is essential, it allows us to do things we may not think are "right" if we become educated or more experienced, education and experience can fence us in.
Also, I’m a great fan of being self taught, if someone teaches you, you’re likely to go on to play like them, and won’t develop your own, unique style.
