Hi.
I would like to know the exact meaning of this "hard driving" I have read here:
'But I was glad to play with him again because he was always an inventive, HARD DRIVING, imaginative musician.'
I don't understand very well what it refers to.

Thanks in advance, Jo.

If he is hard driving, it means he pushes hard, he's energetic. Nothing to do with driving cars! You could use a hyphen: hard-driving.
Uh-uhm, "He has a hard drive in him".

Cheers,

You can't say "He has a hard drive in him" unless you are referring to a cyborg, someone with a Emotion: computer hard drive implanted in to his body.

You can say "He is driven" or "He is a driven man" (he is very dedicated and determined, perhaps obsessed).

Or perhaps you were joking?

I agree, but one can find this in the New York Times:

One could imagine replacing "obsessive" with "hard" in this contextEmotion: smile
