You have the courage and power to live your dreams. Stephen Ridley joined a top tier investment bank after graduating from one of the best universities in Britain. He hated the job. First he started interviewing at other city jobs - just the same feeling of misery. There had to be more to life than this. Ultimately, Stephen quit his job on the spot to play piano on the streets of London. He has just recorded his first album and couldn't be happier. by brendaq

James Montgomery Flagg, 1877-1960, was a child prodigy who sold his first illustration at the age of 12, according to his bio in this hotlink. He was a blatant imitator of Gibson and probably got a lot of work because of the astronomical (at the time) prices that Gibson demanded. by isabella

At age 12, in 1960, Dully received a transorbital or ice pick lobotomy from Dr. Walter Freeman, who invented the procedure, making Dully an unfortunate statistic in medical history—the youngest of the more than 10,000 patients who Freeman lobotomized to cure their supposed mental illness.    he did not exhibit any signs of mental instability at the time, and why, postoperation, he was bounced between various institutions and then slowly fell into a life of drug and alcohol abuse. by maryanne
