There were train cancellations, bus cancellations, extortionate taxi rides and the same all over again on the return journey, but during the hour in-between I got to sit down and enjoy a concert that I've been looking forward to for months.

Lara St. John and the Royal Philharmonic. She played Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E Minor (Op. 64). For those who aren't familiar with this piece, it's awesome on the basis of being mafia music. It's the background music played by God's narrative fiddle as the Cosa Nostra do their thing.

And the best part? I managed to (unbeknownst to myself) pick the best seat in the house. I was literally less than five feet away from Lara. I'm considering this one dream come true.

So you like classical music?

Indeed I do. When you think about it, the most kickass guitar solos are violin pieces with overdrive.
