David freakin' Garrett

How is it that I have never heard of this god of all studmuffins before? David freakin' Garrett:

I discovered who he is because I was researching the music of Rimsky-Korsakov and Garrett broke a world-record for violin speed by playing R-K's Flight of the Bumblebee.

He attended Julliard, helping to pay for it by working as a model! And looking at him, you can see why. If Catherine the Great was around today, she would certainly recruit this guy. He's like Ewan McGregor crossed with Kurt Cobain crossed with Paganini. If there was ever a candidate for cloning, it's this guy. If I could get him to play the Ivan Rimsky-Korsakov character in my play about Catherine the Great I could die happy.
