[photogallerylink id=32000 align=left] Today is [lastfm]Frantz Liszt[/lastfm]’s birthday. Born in 1811. Too bad he didn’t make the cut for the Friday Feature. Frantz was an amazing pianist and composer from Hungary. He was a bit of a rock star kinda guy in his time. When he would go on performance tours, women would scream and swoon, fight over his gloves and handkerchiefs, and were frantic over his stage appearances. Liszt…[lastfm]Elvis[/lastfm]…The [lastfm]Beatles[/lastfm]…Justin…you get the picture. But the most important thing is the music. Enjoy.
Ken Russell had Roger Daltry play Liszt and Ringo Starr play the Pope (!!!)
And you know this one…
