Is this fact or fiction?
I came across this in a bio article. I also read that he killed three of his lovers.
No guys. I do not believe in soul or the devil and it is just gibberish to say that you can imprison someone's soul in your violin. However, it is widely believed that he killed three of his lovers and used their intestines to make gut strings. I just want to know the veracity of this statement.
I do know that he gave in to his two passions apart from music/violin - women and gambling -- to which he became addicted. But I am not sure if he really killed anyone.
