This is like Jimi Hendrix at Monterey. I personally don't believe in destroying musical instruments,given that so many young musicians can't afford one, but who am I to criticize Hendrix (or The Who, for that matter)?

Funny thing about this is the firewall between him and the piano. It's definitely there beneath the piano, and it looks like it's there on top as well. The player is at no risk from the fire whatsoever.

It makes an unusual picture at first, but is completely pointless when you consider it's nothing more than a staged, controlled trick.
