Here is an article worth reading in Wikipedia - I've read about this in a travel guide to Vienna as well so I think Wiki can be trusted here - and Wiki gives us so many more details!

For someone as emotionally immature as I am almost every sentence is a source of delight. I have an almost cinematic experience reading this entry:

You can't really blame Peter and Rosenbaum. They were just trying to get ahead.

The 'bump of music' was a surprise - wonder where that is.

Also I enjoyed the scene where they play pass the skull when Prince comes - that is straight out of Lucy and Ethel - I like to picture then lobbing it back and forth every time Ricky turns his back.

Anyway, I'm glad the great man is re-united, and in such plush new digs.

And of course there is the science of "retro-phrenology" which is, according to Terry Pratchett, the adjusting of someone's psychological traits by using small, carefully-applied hammers.
