As a young musician ,was walking one night when six of the kids that he taught piano struck him from behind. They had wanted him to say sorry to a child that he called,"nanny-goat bassoonist."( Someone who makes a bassoon sound like a goat.) He wouldn't take it back,and he took out a knife to defend himself. The fight was broken up before anybody was hurt.
