You and I might spend our downtime singing in the shower, dancing at the club, and plucking on a guitar. But our favorite artists are wont to unwind with less musical hobbies. When the lights go down, artists like Prince pick up a ping pong paddle, Roger Daltrey a fishing rod, and Justin Bieber a Rubik’s Cube. These pastimes run the gamut from completely ordinary like Rivers Cuomo and Lily Allen’s knitting, to an obsession that led Neil Young to become a part owner in a toy train manufacturing company.
