    He smoked.
    He was a gypsy.
    He would often disappear into the country-side without telling anyone.
    He was incapable of reading sheet music.
    Instead of fighting against the Germans during WW II, he performed at night clubs in Paris.
    As a child, he was exposed to a fire which severely burned his left hand, preventing him from using his ring and pinky fingers.
    Although he couldn't use 2 of his 5 fingers, he figured out a unique way of playing the guitar.
    He was an accomplished violinist.
    He's considered the greatest European jazz musician ever.
    Ralph Gleason said of his music: 'They were European and they were French and they were still jazz.'
    In Woody Allen's mockumentary 'Sweet and Lowdown,' Sean Penn's character, Emmet Ray, is the world's second best guitarist behind Django.
