9. His Symphony #1 flopped so bad, he gave him a nervous breakdown and writer's block. He was only able to get over when he got help from a hyponotist. (Hint: ironic actually, in a modern movie, his Piano Concerto #3 gave that person a nervous breakdown too)
10. Was asked to orchestrate a version of "The Star Spangled Banner." The public was so outraged at is, Boston threw him in jail for it (for defiling the National Song-you know they should have done that to Rosanne Barr too). He's got the mug shot to prove it :)

I don't know a single answer! Although for #6 I'd guess Elgar, since his Enigma Variations were written for and about his friends.

*(for defiling the National Song-you know they should have done that to Rosanne Barr too)*

Perhaps they also should have done that with Francis Scott Key. ;-)
