There is a thing that Jon Arnold likes to call Glasgow Zen. It is the philosophy which I try to live my life out by. Try being the operative word.
I thought I'd sum it up in a few quick commandments, because I'm pretentious and all that. Its not particularly religious, though it has its formings in Jesuit teachings, I admit, because one can't help being a product of ones teaching. You don't need to be very religious to follow it though: heck, I'm not. Its just what a try to do to avoid being a complete git in public.
"Rock and roll music – the music of freedom frightens people and unleashes all manner of conservative defence mechanisms.”
“Rock has no beginning and no end for it is the very pulse of life itself.” Larry Williams
“I'm just a guy being a professional musician, trying to make a living. But since the band got together and I've seen the things I've seen...

The rock and roll revolution has been and gone.” Alex Harvey
