as music saved my soul: naive ignorance
Without a doubt, ignorance makes us naive, stupid, dumb or curious. Growing up, my guitar hero was Ace Frehley (real name Paul Daniel Frehley) of KISS who played a series of Gibson Les Paul guitars. That was the model I always wanted — not Fender Stratocaster or Telecaster, not Gibson Flying V or any Rickenbacker model (not referring to 4001 model, which I do like). In 1985, when I started to learn about music (history, instruments, etc), I thought Les Paul was made by Hondo when I saw an ad in Hit Parader since I didn’t know about Gibson. Nowadays I know much more than the average person understand about electric guitars — as music saved my soul.
