Sir James in Hollywood

I was checking out James Galway's website this morning and noticed he's playing a big gig with the LA Philharmonic and Leonard Slatkin tonight (8/26) at the Hollywood Bowl. Galway has made a most remarkable comeback after suffering a nasty fall at his home in Switzerland last December, just two weeks after turning 70.

The world-renowned flautist was forced to cancel three months of recitals after he plunged down a flight of stairs at his home in Lucerne, Switzerland, leaving him with a gash on his forehead, a fractured left wrist and shattered right elbow.

So well done, Sir James...definitely the front-runner for "Come Back Player of the Year."
