I met him once, while reporting a story on the 100th anniversary of Carnegie Hall. He was lovely.

Thank you for reminding of Yehudi Menuhin today on his birthday. Beautiful music.

Rosemarie and Robin -- How wonderful to have met Yehudi Menuhin, Rosemarie! And, Robin, reading your comment reminded me of your handshake collection and how all of us in this little blogging community are connected to each other and so many others in these truly miraculous ways. I didn't shake hands with Johnny Cash but I did stand next to him at a local bookstore as he signed my copy of Bob Dylan's Nashville Skyline album which had a poem he wrote about Bob Dylan on the back of the album cover. Johnny Cash looked up at me in surprise when I handed him the album but proceeded to sign his name after the poem. If I could do it over again, I would have bought his book, The Man in White, and had him sign that, too.
