I don't know. I've only read that he was classically trained to play piano.



Piano is quite a bit different.  I doubt ANY top rock musician ever took violin lessons for an extended period of time.

It means he probably knew music theory.  Roll Eyes

I've got a theory for you.  A guy who grew up taking violin lessons shouldn't criticize kids he sees as privileged. Because what do you think you were?

Are you crazy? how was i privilaged? because i went to a public school that had a cheap music program with cigar box violins, 30 beginner 10 year olds crammed in "orchestra" with a teacher who is actually a pianist instead of a violinist? IF I would have been privillaged... as in had money to have a private teacher since I was young and owned my own instrument then if I complained it would be stupid.

Different how? It's more heterosexual?

Sometimes you can only train with what you have access to. Pianos are very expensive and it isn't like you can drive down to the local music shop and just rent one.  Undecided

Calm down, Martha.  What I'm saying is that there are a shitload of kids who barely get enough to eat every day, yet you are whining cause you didn't get to continue your faggy violin lessons.

Elton john is a man's man...Smiley but the type of instrument in my book goes a long way in determining what type of guy you want to be. When was the last time you saw a macho flute player?

Don't blame those kids, blame your parents!  I don't know how many people I see these days with little to nothing, they usually have a buttload of kids.  There on assistance, you look at the parents and there idiots with no education, who spend all there money on beer and cigs.

Meh, I grew up with very little also but I have no problem giving my kids whatever they want so long as they appreciate it.

There is nothing wrong with a parent who wants to give their child a better life.


I agree for the most part. 

I dropped my two oldest off at high school this morning.  First day of school.  My oldest daughter's 16-year-old best friend pulled up beside us driving her Ford Expedition.  I'd never do that for a kid that young, but it doesn't bother me that this kid's parents have done it for her.

True.

It's a pity that we don't have access to a psychological profiler.

i had to start violin at 10 and it was only 2 days a week with 30 other kids at the same time and it was a dumb school. When i got older (over 20) i was able to get lessons but i had to keep stopping cause i still couldn't afford em.
who says you need lessons to continue playing? since you had been playing/getting lessons for TEN YEARS you sure as hell dount need to pay for lessons anymore....

my kid is almost 7 and has his high green and hits like a truck, after he gets a couple years and black belt done I want to move him to something with ground fighting and possiable some krav maga when he gets older, just so when he wants to give me lip as a teen I want to feel he can defend himself when i come off the top rope and lay the smack down..Smiley

He is gonna be a "ground and pound" maiming machine!

I'm just saying that there are great rock musicians with classical training. Eddie Van Halen is a good example.



Eddie is a great example of that.

They sure do!

I bet they have more sugar in just one glass of that stuff than a six-pack of Moutain Dew.

I wonder how they taste with a double shot of SoCo?  Huh
