Do you think their looks may have some relation with their genius nature? Both geniuses, both look alike.

BUT... They both married their cousins. And so did Bach. Now THAT'S significant.

Maybe Alfred was a Grieg fan!


And ...
why does he look nothing like Glenn Gould? Weren't they supposed to be relatives?

Was Grieg not also a tongue-sticker-outer?

Grieg looks more like Mark Twain to me.

Can't be; someone has said that never the Twain shall meet!

I can't imagine that someone in today's world of mass communications has never heard of look-alikes. As far as "why" someone looks like another? Sorry, but not an relevant question.

And while Einstein is recognized as having been a genius and Grieg a good composer, even a very good composer, that doesn't make the latter a genius, and what does that have to do with the vague similarity in appearance with that of Einstein?

Not the most insightful of topics, I must say.

Cheers!

I don't think looking similar to Einstein has anything to do with geniusiality, for I look nothing like him.
