Oh there's actually considered to be Arrogant to work without sheet music at the time but he thought it was something to create more of an atmosphere but more of a performance and he would do things like he would turn the piano so that he was the audience could see him and he used this really good looking guy had this long flowing hair and so that they could see him sweating and the hair flowing and his beads of sweat coming off him and so he was. He was well aware of his potential for doing something that was could incite an audience. And he did he would you know. They're the term list of media was something came up in the press because he did this tour of europe and people especially women in their twenties to forties. We're just going nuts.
