In today’s world, it’s difficult to remain mysterious. If you’re a rockstar, you will have every single detail of your life divulged to everyone whether you like it or not. If someone spots you somewhere, all they have to do is take a picture of you and post it online. But back in the day, musicians could choose to keep their lives private.
