i don't really have a person i look up to and worship in the same sense. but i do look up to people and inspire myself with things they've accomplished. i like to build on myslef so that only i can be my own idol.
Frank Zappa all the way. the guy was out of this world, dude!!! Musical genius, intolerant against drugs in his band, great family man, Frank kept working untill the very last moment of his life. For me, having an idol is the incentive to reach and overcome your aims in life, whatever they are. Thats the point. If the student does not surpass the teacher, then there is no progress. And Frank surpassed his idol ( Edgar Varese) by far.
