    Thanks very much Victor. I enjoy your music quite a lot as well. Now, I need to check out this Leone guy and see what he's been up to.

    Well... at first, right as he was crossing the Pearly Gates, he was offered the standard issue harp by St. Peter himself. He objected, perhaps somewhat too vociferously, insisting that he be allowed to play his mandolin instead while accompanying the choirs of the blessed under the directorship of angels and archangels. Things got a bit testy, then Arch. Raphael suggested that a certain namesake of his from Naples would once surpass Leone in fame, then record showed certain personal indiscretions of Mr. Leone while in France. In the end, I'm afraid things didn't work out so well for him in the afterlife.

    Lol! What tenacity! A true mandolin devotee. My regards to him and hope he makes a go of it over there yet. I did listen to some of his music, and will listen to more for certain. I might call it heavenly -hear that St. Peter.
