Speaking of Youtube videos of great violinists, I just watched Michael's demonstration of several notable "teachers" teaching vibrato... Hilarious... and even Pierre made a cameo appearance 🙂

Wow, talk about sitting in the presence of greatness.
We used to have famous people at the house all the time so it takes a lot to impress me. Dad knew a lot, mom grew up with several, but it was my 700 pound 6'8" Uncle Turnip that just drew people to him. Mickey Gilley was knocking people out of the way to have his picture taken with my uncle. I didn't know who he was. True to Southern hospitality you have to invite them to dinner, and country people show up. Randy Travis was working at the Opryland hotel washing dishes when we met him, heard the majority of his first 2 albums at a picnic table in the back yard when I was 11 or 12. It was Randy the dishwasher.
If Ruggiero Ricci had ever showed up I would have died right there. They used to show his performances on PBS one Saturday a month, between Lawrence Welk ( ) and Hee Haw. It alternated, sometimes Pavarotti, Keisler, Joshua Bell, Giuseppe di Stefano. Cause kids love Polka, followed by Opera, and tied off with an hour of old time country. Couldn't tell you what happened next because I was always asleep before Hee Haw got to going good unless Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner were coming on. I stay up for Dolly.
