Blazing Cavaillon

OK, more appropriately the name’s Blaze, Castil Blaze, in Cavaillon:


Oh, the stories of Monsieur Blaze that I could regale you with!  Oh, the glasses of pastis that have been lifted in a toast to Monsieur Blaze!  Oh, the tears of laughter that have been spilt over the stories about Monsieur Blaze!

Well, I am sure they all exist. And I am sure there is a good reason the inhabitants of the French Provence village of Cavaillon have chosen to erect a massive statue in his honor. But . . . I have no idea why. According to Wikipedia he was essentially a music critic.
