Rock 'n' roll writings. Here's one from American Folk in Granta 76. 2001. "But no one is just like anybody else. No one, in fact is even who he or she was ever supposed to be. No one was supposed to step out from their fellows and stand alone to say their piece, to thrill those who stand and listen with the notion that they, too might have a voice, to shame those who stand and listen because they lack the courage to do more than that."
