Songs-for-life rocker Pongsit Kamphee opens up on working with his heroes, violence at his shows and his surprising popularity with hipsters

Twenty years ago, a young, rising musician, only five years into what would be a long and prosperous career, entered a studio with an already famous senior, who had by then achieved near-legend status, to record an impromptu acoustic session simply called Unplugged. It went on to sell more than a million copies, and has now become a collector's item.
