I can tell you with complete certainty, that bloke is not me.
1.) He's musically gifted. As much as I love music, I learned one chord for guitar in 1993 and my musical ability has stretched no further. If my talent was three times greater, I could have joined Status Quo. Sadly it wasn't to be.
2.) His surname is Baranowsky. I share my name with the bloke who wrote The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons and so on. I always used to introduce myself as Dan, these days I prefer Danny or Daniel. Despite being a 30 year old Northumbrian, I would tell people what my name is and if the conversation made it that far, I would mention that I write... Misunderstandings were a lot more common than you might think.
I will say that I envy the fella his talent. Music is one of many areas where I'm about as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike. The ability to draw is another one. I'm not given to jealousy, but I really
wish I had a talent for one of those two things.
