Joshua Bell — Oh, This Old Thing? It's Just My $15 Million Violin!!! | TMZ


    • Rick- “I’ll give you 20 bucks for it and that’s the best I can do. I mean after stocking fees, restoration fees, and the cost of getting my expert to look at it, I need to make a profit and I don’t even know how long it could be sitting on my shelf. It could take years to sell”

  1. he should take it to Pawn Stars just for the fun of it, to see how much they would value it at.

  2. Damn I wonder if him sweating all over it makes it lose some value. I would be scared of dropping it or maybe nicking the side of it on a wall or misplacing it/someone stealing it. I’d leave it sitting in a safe at home.

  3. Wow….that’s a pretty awesome violin… $15 million , impressive indeed………..quick question Josh , will armpit Sweat ruin the wood..??
    No.?? Good thing..!!

  4. I like the fact that he doesnt make a big deal out of it, I like him even more for that, he understands that money is the cheapest thing in the world, and sound of that violin is priceless, it is worth more than money thats why he doesnt care how mutch it cost him to get it, he wanted a good sound and quality not an investment, unfortunately nobody can make anything close as good in quality in our days othervise every violins price would be close to Stradivarius…

  5. HE has been playing his heart out and what kind of snarky comment is that about a sweaty, disgusting mess….show some respect for a genius, brilliant musician?

  6. Did anyone come here regarding to the subway 🚇 experiment ?
