I dont know if Pete has always referenced his peers as Jagger, Bowie,
Clapton, Macca, or even if success is a reference to him at all, at least
personal success in mundane sense, like Mirror, mirror, tell me, is there
anyone more famous than me?
I think success is indeed a reference to Pete, but success as a thermometer
of synchronicity, that sense of riding the wave on surf, the wave being
public taste and surf being your talent and creativeness. Its a sense of
changing the world, being the channel for revolution, and the reference here
is always Tommy, that fucking blind, deaf and dumb boy, and his deep mystery
of being so famous being so ridiculous and unpretentious... So, I think Pete
is, without any doubt, a success addictive, but success in his terms, with
art, sense and meaning
Based on that perception, I think Pete don't give a fuck about Jagger,
Bowie, Clapton, Macca and their success or dollars, I think they are no
reference at all to what Pete really wants.
It's human nature to be competitive, but theres always a way to satisfy
this necessity, as racing yachts matches, or watching soccer on TV, these
kind of inoffensive pleasures.
Just my humble opinion.
