LOL tell us how you really feel about Cage. You live on the other side of the pond, so it makes sense Stockhausen is more popular over there, but people in the states love Cage. I'm sure you've seen that vid on youtube of him playing a cactus:
Wolfgang did receive numerous heated letters from his father.
Cage? has he made anything of interest? thought he spend most of his time preparing various pianos with nuts and bolts ...
in the list of dudes one might mention Wagner, Bruckner and Nielsen as well ;o)
