Default Extracurrockular activities

Some musicians are into model trains.

Although model trains might make you think "creepy dude in a basement," it's one of the most popular hobbies there is. The list of music-world enthusiasts includes Johnny Cash, Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen, but Stewart is rock's biggest model train superfan. When his massive 23 x 124-foot "Three Rivers City" train layout was featured on the cover of 'Model Railroader Magazine' in 2007, Stewart said, "I pity a man who doesn't have a hobby like this one."

I have the issue of MR where Stewart's layout was on the cover. Just reading about how he brought it on tour with him and worked on it in hotel rooms is hilarious.
The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts. Bertrand Russell
