Yes, how could I forget?!

Or that director Robert Rodriguez is also a guitarist and composer?

Or that actor and director John Lurie is a musician and composer, who co-founded the Lounge Lizards?

Yes – and, he still flies; but, now he can afford his own aircraft. ;)
A few years ago, a friend who ran an aircraft mechanic shop at the Addison airport (Dallas, TX USA area), who knew that I was a huge Iron Maiden fan in their glory days, called to tell me that he was in town and that they were working on his airplane. Of course, I never got to meet him in person or hang-out at a casual lunch, etc. ... She still enjoys rubbing that in on occasion. LOL

Settle down -- we're not accusing anybody of anything here. Besides, grade 6 kids are only around 11 years old.
