[Harp-L] RE: death of live music

I realize this is not harmonica-related, but apparently you can no longer even give away even the highest calibre music... The Washington Post ran a little social experiment where they dressed up classical violinist virtuoso Joshua Bell in cap, t-shirt, and pants and had him busk just outside a Metro subway station to see how people would react, to see if the power of the music would grab them. I don't know the classical world well, but this guy's cheap tickets sell for $100 a seat and he's playing a $7.5 million dollar fiddle. To find out what happened, see article and video here:
