    Oops

    Virtuoso's trip destroys priceless Stradivarius - News - Classical - The Independent

    "David Garrett, 26, one of the nation's foremost young concert performers, had an accident that every world-class musician must dread: at the end of a concert at the Barbican he tripped and landed on his violin.

    The instrument is a 290-year-old Stradivarius, so rare that it would be almost impossible to estimate its value. Certainly there are people who would have gladly paid hundreds of thousands of pounds for it, before its glamorous owner did a turn as Mr Bean."

    Wow I could never live that down. That would haunt me about as bad as the 04' and 05' debacles.

    Reading this makes me sick to my stomach. Cannot imagine how that guy is possibly feeling.

    Anyway something like that could have been insured?

    And no matter how good he ever gets at playing violin, he will forever be remembered as 'the guy who fell on the stradavarius'. He should probably try to find a job about as far away from music as possible. Or be a comedian.

    Yes, really. It's funny what you can find surfing the interwebs.......soaking in the vast amount of information and knowledge that was never before available to the common man. Until I see boobies, and then it's pretty much boobies from there on out.
