    Born in Paris, France
    Birth name was Philippe Pages
    Classical/Easy-listening pianist

    As a struggling young musician, he ate so poorly that he required an operation for ulcers at age 17.
    He adopted his great-grandmother's last name because of concerns that his original name would be mispronounced outside of France.
    Like Slim Whitman and Zamfir, commercials for his albums were ubiquitous on late-night TV.
    He was accepted to the prestigious Conservatorie of Muisc in Paris at age 12.
    Variety said that he combined 'boyish good looks' with 'gentlemanly charm.'
    He was listed as the world's most successful pianist in the Guinness Book of Records.
