If it had been up to rock and roll, Rufus Wainwright would be dead now, or else working for a real estate company or something. But classical music saved him:

"The greatest asset during my rehab process has been the influence of classical music, which saved my life.

"Unlike rock 'n' roll, where drugs, sex and debauchery are the norm, you can write your most interesting music when you're old, fat and ugly."

... which everyone ignores in favour of so-so versions of the popular classics performed by pretty young things in flighty dresses.
