A little bit of real history here - The Heartbreakers, one of the best bands America ever produced, in their early incarnation with Richard Hell on bass. Thunders not only looks lucid here he actually looks positively healthy

Really late in posting this in honor of Bernstein's 100th birthday, but I just thought of it again after the Star is Born buzz and remembering Bradley Cooper's Bernstein biopic supposedly in the works.
Sensational performance... with Bernstein conducting and playing at the same time like an f'n badass. I'm sure Woody Allen would approve...

Since we just had Leonard Bernstein's 100th birthday... here's Glenn Gould playing Beethoven celebrating the composer's 200th birthday in 1970:
I've always loved Gould's weirdness... singing to himself as he plays, the way he generally externalizes what he's feeling internally through what seems like exaggerated movement, conducting to himself at certain points with a free hand, sitting in his childhood chair instead of on a bench lol
