This may be OT, but does anyone remember the guy who was channelling Glenn Gould?

That was quirky fun as much as I regard snyprrr as harmless and good for some chuckles.

Yes, I forgot about that

And wasnt there also a guy who had some conspiracy theory about someone else writing Mozart's pieces?

If it was something that was open for public discussion, I would have discussed it with the public a long time ago.

That impression is aided by the quiet filtration.

I DO remember the Glenn Gould guy, but not his name. He was serious, which made him funnier. :)

The famous Rob Newman, of course. The Internet sensation. We entertained him for longer than most do, but eventually he broke down. I enjoyed Rob, he was in his own world, that's for sure!

As a lover of Pelleas et Melisande I remember the GMG member who was so over the top about the opera that even I avoided the thread.

Our old friend Pinky. (Pink Harp). What a lovely fellow he was, don't understand how he irritated people so much. Of course, I never read the opera thread in those days... :)

We're woefully behind the times here, Ken. Some people even think Haydn wrote his own stuff, which is ridiculous, as we know now. Those 2 were just figureheads for an entire Italian industry. Generous Austrians!  ::)

All I know for sure is that when Mozart was a kid in England he got his hands on a trunk full of music by the Earl of Oxford,  Edward De Vere,  and passed it off as his own over the years. I had heard the rumor that Roger Bacon wrote all of Haydn's stuff, but didn't really believe it until now.
