He became interested with the supernatural and with the actual meaning of life.

Reading his works makes me wonder about so many things at the same time… about life. One could say that they are frightened to “dig deep” into his work for they may find out things they are afraid of. Eliade always tackles difficult subjects. . about love. all in the shape of a thrilling line of action. about art. Somehow. such as religion.

Steven Tyler dedicated everything to her. His life. the lead singer of “Aerosmith”. During pieces such as “I don’t wanna miss a thing” or “Dream on” his feelings are so overwhelming that an entire stadium’s hearts are pounding at the same time. this man also possesses an inexplicable sex-appeal that draws everybody’s attention.
