I just used 49 minutes of my life wisely...that was a truly inspirational speech from a guy who knows...The bit about the Beatles and vinyl with his kids made me laugh because that's exactly what we do with our kids...Give them Beatles records and a turntable...(for their own good of course)-... smile.gif

He seems to have inspiring words every time he speaks. It is always great to hear someone talk about something they are truly in love with & enthusiastic about. You can easily tell that it is from the heart. Thanks for posting. smile.gif

So awesome. I love in the beginning when he was talking about a musicians "voice." Such true facts.

Great inspirational video. I watched it twice now after your turned us on to this Cosmin.

I like the part where he says after Springsteen laughed "as if to say good f'n luck buddy" that it wasn't the first time he had heard someone say that. It's kind of subtle but really says a lot about what happens and what you have to do about it whenever you set out to do something ambitious and difficult (such as guitar or anything really). It does happen. Anything worth achieving seems to be met with so much opposition especially by people who know us well. Even your best friends will tell you it can't be done. You have to ignore all the negativity, dig down, and believe in yourself, cause no one else is going to it seems.
