Sorry, WHAT makes you happy, Francesco?! Not so young pianist who rode on Derrick May’s coat tails has his Facebook page hacked… by someone flogging tacky shoes

The music world has many people who make it there on the coat tails of someone else. Far more than we’ll ever know. One of those is Francesco Tristano. Some years ago, he met Derrick May and the two decided to collaborate together. At some stage, Tristano found out May couldn’t play but went ahead with it anyway.

So having sold a load of dodgy stuff to the public already, I notice with interest that Francesco Tristano is now trying to flog something else that’s of highly questionable quality – some of the most hideous shoes ever made.

Mercifully, it’s not him selling us this tat – his Facebook page has been hacked. Hopefully, he’ll have it back soon. I wouldn’t blame for being clucked off with developments…
