"He is at peace in the limo on the way to the gig. He feels as good as he can feel, and if determination was lightning he'd be a thunderstorm."
Das Unterstrichene ist mir nicht ganz klar. Klar ist, das der Angesprochene entschlossen ist vor seinem Auftritt ...
Ist das eine Redewendung?
It sounds to me that you actually do have a perfect understanding of the underlined portion of that quote.
Seen in mathematical terms, you'd basically have the following:determination = lightning
much determination = much lightning
much lightning = thunderstorm
thereforemuch determination = thunderstorm
The author is basically using imagery to paint a picture of how determined the guy really is.
