The Man Who Knew Paderewski
It was Paderewski who advised Wladziu Valentino Liberace to bill himself using just his last name. Liberace, a child prodigy and who made his debut with the Chicago Symphony while still a teen, left classical music and became a Vegas icon.
Liberace is also the subject of a new film that's in the works. Nicholas Cage is reported as producing and starring in the film about Liberace's life. Apparently Cage is a big Liberace fan. Cage owns one of Liberace's jackets that he bought at auction.
More about the move can be found here.
