  vonKrolock: His dates are 1901-1973 - Maybe related to another player (& composer) born August 23th 1902, who lives in Zagreb, at the age of 103 years old?!

Good one. I wonder how many people will understand it?

Jul-18-13  Shams: <Focus> Thanks. I was in Japan when that guy was at his peak. I had to watch between my fingers when they brought out Nihonjin to face him-- grisly.
