I was there. And here are some outcomes of mine...
Well, I've seen the advertisement in the beginning of May and decided I definitely have to attend it as I really love Steve's music (but to be honest I bought my tickets only a day before the master-calss, as I just forgot about it. Fortunately, there were still available spots).
Well, it's obvious that I've got real satisfaction listening to Steve's performing his famous songs like Tender Surrender, The Crying Machine, Building Church, etc.
There were also nice discussions and live talks, when Steve shared his learnings from his guitarist career and simply from his life.
And you know what. Surprisingly, those sharings made the most important part of that evening for me. I'm not used to have idols or something, so I didn't study Steve's biography very well and deep. But what he shared about his experience showed me that Steve is not only the greatest guitarist but also a great person. His values, beliefs and strivings show me real role-model.
For now I am leading the local chapter of the International Youth-run NGO called AIESEC. It is really hard work, you need to motivate people, manage them, you don't get any money for that - you do it for the Aim. And, obviously, sometimes when you're tired you lose any motivations, challenges you face seem to be too big and you think you're not able to keep going.
But Steve's example really shows me what does it mean - to love what you do with all your heart - and to put yourself completely in it. It inspires me a lot.
Well, Steve, thank you for this! You really do inspire to do more, to strive for excellence and to be looking for your own way. I am very grateful for this role-modeling!
PS Don't know if you read these topics personally, but I will be very honored if you could reply me anywhere (my contacts are below), as I wish to keep in touch with you.
