"Scientists are used to facing the music. Failure stares them down every time their grant is denied, their paper is rejected, their fellowship is declined or their experiment flops. ...In part, say scientist-musicians, it is because performing live onstage or setting down tracks in the studio is akin to a powerfully addictive drug: it gives them such a rush that they must keep coming back for more. ... Music and science, he [Milo Aukerman] says, are different sides of the same coin — they both draw on creative energies and abilities. ..."
