One of the Best Self-Descriptions of a Rock Star I’ve Ever Read

I quote Barney Sumner from New Order in the February 2012 edition of Mojo Magazine:

“The thing is none of you journalists really know what musicians are like. You see a caricature, a cartoon figures.  You can’t possibly know what we’re like because you’d have to be with us every minute of the day to find out.  It’s like an iceberg; you only see part of it. The rest is submerged.”
