Did you know that the famous pianist Franz Liszt was exceedingly popular back in the day? Women often swooned when attending his concerts. At the end of concerts, fans would crowd around him, fighting each other for Liszt's gloves or a handkerchief. Women asked for locks of his hair - So many women asked for Liszt's hair, that he actually obtained a dog and sent off pieces of the dog's fur when asked for yet another lock... Known as "Lisztomania," crowd behavior was a precursor to behavior at Beatles concerts, or perhaps a Justin Bieber concert of today!
