The lights dim. A man walks onto the stage, a spotlight tracking his movements as he picks up his waiting guitar. As the crowd waits in muttering silence, he begins his solo. Soft music fills the air and the crowd lets out its waiting breath. Suddenly other members of the band are on stage and fill in the background for the guitar. The lyrics begin and the crowd’s voice rises to meet the lead guitarist. ...
