Billy Collins: Well, I think I’d like to sit down with Eric Clapton and just ask him to show me how to play the guitar or (laughter) I think I’d probably like to sit down with a musician. Maybe a piano player – a jazz piano player – and just talk about how the piano is played. Just to get . . . to get inside something like that. Because I’d much rather be a musician than a writer. That’s the dream I never . . . I never worked on hard enough. Someone like that. I’m not sure. It wouldn’t be Joan of Arc or all these dead people. That’s not part of the question.
