From another board

Go Down


So just as an aside, on another (music related) board I frequent, there was a thread about Bill Monroe's Lloyd Loar mandolin that was once smashed with a fireplace poker and who did the act.  Along with that people offered stories about how their own instruments were severely damaged.

I'm sure you can see what's coming next.

In Monroe's case, and most of the others, the culprit is an angry woman.  Damn, domestic violence committed by women has to be at least twice as common as that committed by men.

Incidentally, in today's market, a Lloyd Loar mandolin is worth abou $200,000.
"To such females, womanhood is more sacrosanct by a thousand times than the Virgin Mary to popes--and motherhood, that degree raised to astronomic power. They have eaten the legend about themselves and believe it; they live it; they require fealty of us all." -- Philip Wylie, Generation of Vipers


I'd say it's definitely twice as common, and maybe more.
