The thing is Joshua Bell is a great violinist but he doesn’t know how to busk.
So the next time Joshua Bell wants to do a little busking, I suggest he leave the three million dollar Stradivarius at home and don some tighty-whiteys instead.
I’d be interested to know the ins and outs of insuring a $3.5M violin during such an endeavor.
One interesting factoid, however, is that Joshua Bell’s “Voice of the Violin” album shot to the number one spot on iTunes’ classical section today. Any correlation between the Washington Post story and iTunes sales?
