I saw Rachel Barton Pine on PBS Newshour recently, and I was really impressed. She’s a classical violinist who nearly died when her violin case got caught in a train door, dragging her for hundreds of feet. She now walks on a prosthetic limb. She believes in bringing music to the masses by playing in prisons and homeless shelters. Oh, and she just happens to be a metalhead.
Somewhere, Randy Rhoads is smiling right now.
