Subject: RE: Help: 'The Devil's Music'
Have you read THE DEVIL'S BOX by Charles Wolfe? I believe this all started with Nicolo Paganini,(maybe earlier?) Probably one culture trying to bad-mouth the influences of another, or an early Public Relations gimmick. Wolfe's book sums up the American notion of it pretty well. Interesting topic, my friend.
