Tuesday tune: Chilly Gonzales.
I know it's Monday but I can't wait until tomorrow's Tuesday Tune to share this video with you. It is Chilly Gonzales, a piano virtuoso, provocative entertainer, world record holder for the longest solo-artist performance, and...our next door neighbour. We saw him live on Saturday and it was probably the best concert I have ever seen. Gonzales' ego is excessive to the point he calls himself a musical genius, but in fact, that's exactly what he is. A genius who inspires so many failed piano players like myself yet despite his success, is so laid back, he goes shopping in his slippers.
Update: this pretty much sums up the concert (article in French).
ps: thank you all for your kind words after Friday's post. I'm just going through one of those moments - a "coup de blues" as the French say. But I'll get over it. I just need to chillax more! (in the words of Jgee)
