I think all musicians have to have a healthy dose of DIVA in them to be successful, so I have no doubt that JSB had his divo moments. All in all, he wrote some amazing compositions and his peers of the day — Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin — followed him around like he was a rock star. Boy, he wasn’t just popular as composer, but the ladies were happy to see him. He fathered 20 kids! If he were still living, I bet he would be having plastic surgery, taking vitamins and working out on a regular basis, as all Divos should!
My favorite Bach quote: “It’s easy to play any musical instrument: all you have to do is touch the right key at the right time and the instrument will play itself.” (Such a kidder!)
