    He had a bad temper.

    His concertos are rather formula.
    Despite being a Catholic priest, he had a secret sexual relationship with one of his female students.

    His 'Four Seasons' concertos have been overused in commercials and movies.
    He grew up poor.
    He was a fantastic violinist.
    His family forced him to take up the priesthood, as it was the only way he could get a free education.
    Johann Sebastian Bach ripped off many of his tunes, then burned the manuscripts so nobody would find out.
