I want to share this wonderful article I discovered by having also discovered James Rhodes’ book, “Instrumental: A Memoir of Madness, Medication, and Music.” It is a hauntingly real story of Mr. Rhodes fighting his personal demons, only to be anchored to reality by his love of music, especially the piano and the Classical. One that I can truly relate to. A worthy, though triggering, read.
The Guardian article – for which Mr. Rhodes blogs – “Forget the Mad Genius Composer Myth,” can be found here. Enjoy and reflect.
