RECENT TIMELINE

When Rupert was in high school, his desire to experiment with various instruments led him to the music room and trying to learn the saxaphone. He could already play a few instruments including the clarinet, but Rupert wanted an instrument more likely to be included in a rock band. After two months of practicing the saxaphone, a very angry teacher stormed in the room and dragged him into his math class, exclaiming that this was the "idiot" who has been interrupting the class for the past few months. As a punishment, the teacher forced Rupert to play in front of the class in an attempt to embarass him. Instead, Rupert started playing "Twist And Shout" to the class and received a standing ovation from his fellow students.
