So if you change the names? The people you write about, won't know that you're writing about them? And they won't be upset? I mean, the problem is that other people will know or is it that they know? If they have a different narrative in their mind, from the one that you wrote about, they will still be upset, I believe.

Great show Marc! Pacino is the best of his generation. And we'll said, the only one still taking chances. Please get Ry Cooder on the show? This man needs a platform to talk about his guitar work - total original.
