We love these guys in our house, especially our budding musician, son Number 2 who couldn’t think of a better gig than getting paid to play his keyboard in amazing places.
When I found this clip of The Piano Guys doing the Mission Impossible theme I thought it was so funny I just had to share it with you.
Clearly it is hard to be a super spy when carrying a cello, especially since you have to take a folding chair everywhere you go… 😀
(I especially loved the use of rosin to reveal the lasers and the blooper reel at the end.)
A few posts ago I wrote about a piano that had landed on the lap of a passing General in 1952, nearly bringing and end to him, and pointing out the fact that a piano can be quite dangerous.Here is another one, this time it managed to cut an ear off the unsuspecting victim in 1912. I have decided that there will never be a piano in this house! That wasn’t really a hard decision, if you knew my house you would know that the thought of having space to put a piano is just laughable. Santa bought number 1 son a drum kit for X-mas and it was just as well the man of the house and I spent the 2 weeks before the big day throwing previously important things away to make enough space in the spare room to fit it in.

When I look through the old newspapers on the NLA website I sometimes put something random into the search engine to see if there are any articles about that subject. Yesterday I wondered if anyone had actually been killed by a falling piano and very quickly found that a piano was involved in many surprising incidents. Reading them made me realize that if you are in a room with a piano you are never safe. This article from The Argus 17th Jan 1952 shows that you are not even safe if there is a piano in a nearby vehicle. His story would always win an ‘I’ve got the best scar’ competition.
