The nineteenth century composer Franz Liszt might have more in common with David Clifford than you might think at first glance. In his heyday the Hungarian maestro was too mobbed by fans, as the Fossa man was yet again on the weekend.

People at the time even coined a term for it: Lisztomania. So taken were people by Liszt’s music, presence and bearing that they were said have been overcome by a form of fever during his performances around the various the concert halls of Europe.
