The Smell of Music

I’m reading this soccer article in The Blizzard and I really like it. I check the author and I think, “I’ve heard of him before. Why?” I Google him. I come across his credentials via Wikipedia. He’s been highly awarded; he’s at the top of his profession. And then I see this:

[The Author of the soccer article that I just read and really liked] announced in 2009 that he could, “smell music.” So far, no-one has been able to disprove his claim. In a far-reaching and controversial interview with The Essex Chronicle, he said that Meatloaf’s ‘Bat Out Of Hell’ smelled, “musky and warm, like your Nan’s attic.”

I’m still laughing. And, no, this is not my imagination. I’m not that creative. Feel free to fact check me here.
