Imagine attending a life science course in college, and your professor is the same guy whose band you saw play last summer in a club. Or you're taking a tour of a stunning new home and discover it was built by a Jonas brother, or renovated by the guy who did "Ice Ice Baby" back in the early '90s.

That's why their work feels so much more personal and special than that of any other medium.

Let's face it: As anyone who's watched more than one episode of VH1 Behind The Music can tell you, rock stars are temperamental and can become unglued over just about anything.
