James was a talented pianist, but just wasn't top tier in his talent. He had plenty of smaller venue gigs, but every time he auditioned for large concerts, he was softly rejected as being "so close, but the other person was just a tad better".
One day he was at a carnival, and for laughs he w...

Yo-Yo Ma's so fat...
he tried to write a new concerto, but couldn't get through the first movement.
It's too bad Led Zeppelin never got to perform and record with a symphony orchestra.
