First Case of Fan Hysteria?

Decidedly hot pianist.

Lisztomania. (n)
1. Lisztomania or Liszt fever is a term used to describe the intense fan frenzy directed toward Franz Liszt during his performances. This frenzy first occurred in Berlin in 1841 and was later coined by Heinrich Heine in a feuilleton he wrote on April 25, 1844, discussing the 1844 Parisian concert season.

Modern band experiencing deep aspirational connection.
2. Lisztomania is also the name of a dangerously pretty Liszt-inspired song by French alt rock band Phoenix, which you should listen to while smugly contemplating how you shall use this fancy trivia.

Elitist! That is a beautiful expression, though. Perhaps we possess a folie à trois - quatre, if you count Bill.
