So You Want to Be President?: The Revised and Updated Edition

Good writing is a mixture of the calculated and the instinctual. No one writes through pure dazed inspiration; questions of craft and calculation enter in quite quickly. Last week, speaking at the Bath festival, Hanif Kureishi cast some doubt on the existence of transferable, teachable craft in writing by witheringly classifying 99.9% of his students as "untalented" and saying that writing a story is "a difficult thing to do and it's a great skill to have. Can you teach that? I don't think you can." (Kureishi teaches creative writing at Kingston University, apparently ineffectually).

A bad creative writing class will look like this. A student has submitted some work with the words: "I don't think it's very good." The class has (mostly) read it. After a long silence, one of the student's best friends, primed, says: "I really like the way you … " The student says: 'Thank you." Another one says: "I didn't quite understand about the bit where …" The student explains. Half the class stay silent; the student leaves with ego intact and work unimproved.

Forced into the academy, a writer might run a good seminar something like this. We would probably talk about an exercise of street observation undertaken in the previous days – how people groom themselves, or attract the attention of strangers. We might discuss an aspect of technique with reference to a passage from a published piece of fiction – last week we talked about character from the outside, looking at a page of Elizabeth Bowen . We might look at a classic book, or an absolutely new novel – it's an obligation on a creative writing course to keep up with new work, and we're investing not just in new work, but in new digital techniques for writing.

Personally, I like to irritate as well as inspire a class, sometimes by saying sagely: "A short story consists of an introduction, five OR seven episodes, and a coda in which the weather changes." (Worked for Chekhov , anyway.) Or: "If you're going to have an animal in a story, have a dog and not a cat." (Dogs are easier structural principles, running up to strangers in parks, and so on.)

Your students are not, thank heaven, going to be much like you as writers. They are going to react against you with their own thoughts and creative principles. Yes, there are courses where people who write present-tense historical novels, apparently about 21st-century women in a crinoline, produce students who do exactly the same thing. But a good creative writing course will produce independent-thinking, craftsmanlike innovators with critical, widely curious and energetic minds. I don't know why this goal isn't more common in universities, anyway.

1) I don't give a shit what's in your head. By which I mean if it isn't on the page it doesn't exist. The connection between your mind and the reader's mind is language. Reading is not telepathy.

Rolling Stone editor David Fricke has noted that although the song's lyrics are heavily sarcastic, beneath the playful cynicism there is a deeper, implicit irony to the song; The Byrds had, themselves, achieved almost overnight success with the release of their debut single, a cover of Bob Dylan 's " Mr. Tambourine Man ." [9] However, the band's members all knew, from their common bitter personal experiences, that the most difficult part of success was in staying successful, staying ahead of the curve artistically, and staying sane under the immense pressure of stardom. [9]

The band performed the song on a number of television programs , including Popside, Top of the Pops , Drop In , The David Frost Show , and Beat-Club . [10] The band also performed "So You Want to Be a Rock 'n' Roll Star" as the final song of their appearance at the Monterey Pop Festival , with the help of guest musicians Hugh Masekela and Big Black. [11] The Byrds' performance of the song at Monterey is included on the 1992 The Monterey International Pop Festival CD box set . [12]

In addition to its appearance on the Younger Than Yesterday album, "So You Want to Be a Rock 'n' Roll Star" also appears on several Byrds' compilations , including The Byrds' Greatest Hits , History of The Byrds , The Original Singles: 1965–1967, Volume 1 , The Byrds , The Very Best of The Byrds , The Essential Byrds , and There Is a Season . [13] Live performances of the song are included on the live portion of The Byrds' (Untitled) album, as well as on the Live at the Fillmore - February 1969 and Live at Royal Albert Hall 1971 albums. [13]

The earliest covers of "So You Want To Be A Rock 'n' Roll Star" were an instrumental version on The Royal Guardsmen 's 1967 album The Return of the Red Baron and the British band The Move 's version on their 1968 EP Something Else from The Move , which was recorded live at the Marquee Club in London. [14] Hookfoot , the British group who served as Elton John 's backing band for a number of years, also released the song as a single in 1974. [15] The song was covered by Scottish hard rock band Nazareth , as part of the track "Telegram" on their 1976 album Close Enough for Rock 'n' Roll .

In 1979, "So You Want to Be a Rock 'n' Roll Star" was recorded by The Patti Smith Group and released as the third single from their album Wave . [16]

The song was also covered by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers during their Southern Accents tour, and it appears on the live album Pack Up the Plantation: Live! [17]
