Violinist Fell and Smashed $1 Million Stradivarius

Bad: Violinist David Garrett fell.
Worse: It was down a flight of stairs.
Luckily: His violin case broke his fall.
Just when you thought everything was going to be okay (The Final Reversal): Inside was a $1 million Stradivarius which was smashed to bits!

Ouch! That was one expensive fall: Link - via One Large Prawn

I looked him up, then heard him play on several clips on Youtube, and came to the conclusion that it's his violin who committed suicide to put an end to the misery this guy was putting it through. Maybe it'd be best if Garrett replaces it with a punching ball or something else he can relate to better.

it's a near certainty that it's insured for the full appraised value (which, depending on the market and the appraiser, could be more than it would actually bring if he sold it). he doesn't need to worry about money at all -- just finding another instrument suited to his tastes.
