So there you have it...pesky musicians







"Be very careful if you make a woman cry, because God counts her tears. The woman came out of a man's rib, not his feet to be walked on, not from his head to be superior, but from his side to be equal, under the arm to be protected and next to the heart to be loved."
--Hebrew Talmud

The daily Stockholm newspaper Dagens Nyheter's Oct 14 2008 edition
concluded that Stan Getz was partly to blame for the financial crisis
now plaguing the world. The reason: an article in the New York Times
called "Taking a hard new look at a Greenspan legacy."

The Swedish paper concluded that things might have been different had
Greenspan pursued a musical career.

ALAN GREENSPAN: Then, I decided that baseball was my thing. And I was
actually getting very good, but at the age of 14, I hit a plateau and I
never improved.

JIM LEHRER: You were a left-hander, first baseman, right?

ALAN GREENSPAN: I was a left-handed first baseman. I hit the ball pretty
well. Then, I got into music, and I became a professional musician for a
couple of years.

JIM LEHRER: Played the clarinet...

ALAN GREENSPAN: Clarinet, saxophone, flute, bass clarinet.

JIM LEHRER: Which one did you enjoy the most?

ALAN GREENSPAN: I actually enjoyed the clarinet the best, but I was a
fairly good amateur, but a moderate professional. But what really did me
in is I had, as an amateur, had to play next to Stan Getz. I was 16; he
was 15. I decided, "Do I really want to be in this business?"

JIM LEHRER: Why, because he was so good?

ALAN GREENSPAN: Oh, my god.

JIM LEHRER: Was he really good?

ALAN GREENSPAN: And he was one of the really historic famous sax
players. And the best economic decision I ever made in my life was to
decide to leave the music business and go into economics.
