Although I'm grateful for the photo-- I'm not sure how we can make the final decision until the swimsuit competition....

Forget the swimsuit.  A nude Saul is what's needed. 8)

Thank you!



By any chance, do you have a well lit, frontal head shot you can offer up?

Why isn't Henning on the list? He's damned handsome. :)

My 3 favorite composers are all relatively ugly. But man, did they have talent! :)

I voted for Brahms but read the list again and saw Clara Schumann on it. Arrgghhh...  :-\

Oh, well. Being objective, I guess they'd probably tie for the top spot anyways.

You mean you tried to stay away from composers you don't understand and are closed off to?

Xenakis could've been if he didn't have shrapnel explode into his cheek and create a dent in it for the rest of his life- and it would help if he didn't have such a big Greek nose.

I don't want pretty-boy handsome. I want handsome with some character!

(BTW, it is also the only way that I myself could be described as handsome by a non-blind person.)

Oh, yeah. I could understand if he had a certain appeal to the women. The guy had serious balls.

Not only did he did he wear a scar of a hero on his face, but he escaped a death penalty and wrote some of the most brutal music ever known to man (and at that time, when heavy metal hadn't been invented, it was the most brutal by far).
