Ted Gabriel | 2 comments I read this at the end of 1980s, likely 1986-88. A fan of a famous classical era composer, who lived a dangerous life and died young, time travels to the moment just before composer's death and takes him into the future, where his illness is cured.


to the fan's dismay, the composer doesn't continue writing the music in his old style, but discovers modern music, joins a electronic music band, writes hits in the current sound. He also discovers drugs and other present day spoils, and ends up in the same predicament as his past.
