It’s almost impossible to have never heard any of Ludwig van Beethoven’s work, even if you are not into classical music. His work has been used in plenty of movies or as samples in music by The Beatles, Alicia Keys and Nas, to name a few. However, how pleasant and calming his music may sound to the ear, so different was he in real life. Van Beethoven was a very antisocial man and the opposite of the social drunkards we all like. He could be very mean, abusive and downright paranoid. However it wasn’t all that bad. He hardly ever missed a day of heavy drinking in his whole life and still became one of the greatest musicians of all times. One has to admit that’s pretty impressive.
