    it was just an aspect...

    Hi

    Johnny was playing the role of the rock star, but the question lingered, was the rock star playing with him? I think it was just an aspect of why he'd wanted to get into rock and roll in the first place that was suddenly given the chance to be fully exorcised.

    --- Does this "aspect" mean the way he was behaving (like a rock star).

    That is: I think the way he was behaving just revealed why he wanted to get into rock and roll at the very beginning and by his behaviour it was suddenly manifested.

    Is that what it means, or not?

    Disclaimer: I'm not a teacher.

    I think you understand the gist of the sentence. As near as I can tell, the author is saying that Johnny had many reasons to want to "get into rock and roll"; the desire to behave like a rock star (and perhaps change his personality in the process) was one of those reasons. By using the word "aspect", the author lets you know this is only one of many reasons.

    On a different note, does the original text really say "exorcised"? Or does it say "exercised"? Those two words mean very different things.
