Amuse me!

Whatever you like, really, knock yourself out... I'm not the boss of you.

Yes. Yes you are. Philistines!
I'm going for Nigel Kennedy as the lie. I can just picture Mark Elder doing a proper nasty look!

Surely that fact that I've dined with Bernard Henri Levi (sort of) makes up for my lack of musical knowledge?

Are there really 2 people here who have met Bill Clinton???
No. At least, if so, neither of them is me. I do know someone with different shoe sizes, though. And I do actually have a gold medal in ballroom dancing. And I once went to a play with Sean Connery in the audience. Nobody watched the play.

YOU DON'T KNOW???????????????????????????????????????????

Mark Elder - Former principle conductor of the English National Opera, now at the Halle Orchestra.
Simon Rattle - Unbelievably amazing conductor, formally of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, now of the Berlin Philharmonic.
Nigel Kennedy - Incredible violinist. (Aston Villa supporter, but we'll brush over that!)

Get yourself onto Wiki. These 3 are gods in the classical music world!

I know who Nigel Kennedy is, obviously but the other two, nope.

However, very sadly, I know Jo Cox's husband (for our non British friends, she's the British MP who was murdered today. The country is in shock). I don't know him well, we used to sit on the same working groups years back but still...

MP - it's horrific. I feel so desperately sad for her family.

I don't know any of the music people you referenced either, sorry!
I heard about Jo Cox today. I had never heard of her before today, but she sounds like she was an amazing person.
