Never give up

This story made me think about all sorts of people who have turned down interviews.

Usually, they fall by the wayside. Forgotten. They said no.

For me, this serves as a reminder to keep trying for those really intriguing stories.

Mick Taylor, the guitarist who quit the Rolling Stones during their heyday, would not talk to reporters. He lives in a run-down house. He has never collected a royalty check. He's never publicly explained why.

Until now.
