    • No need; he’s got a ‘Ban the Bomb’ logo on his piano and is wearing a mask. That’s all you need to get re-tweeted.

  • That was actually rather sweet and touching.

    It may be shameless self-promotion, and he may or may not be a great pianist*, but the people listening (and taking turns at the piano) sure seem to appreciate what he’s doing.

    *(the video barely includes any footage of him playing and what it does show is mostly without audio or just a few chords.)

    • That would turn out more like “freak on, certs!” I see the hapless Gautier has further metamorphosen on his name; let’s hope he con take it on the chin.

    At first I thought you were referring to Horowitz….
