There are an bundance of musical celebrities that call South Florida home. Perhaps none of them is more famous worldwide while still teetering on the edge of irrelevance than Yanni.
The composer makes his home in Manalapan (that's Lantana to us poors) just a stone's throw from the Ritz Carlton. Rumor has it that the Greek musical prodigy might have lost part of his sea wall to Hurricane Sandy.
It seems that Lantana bore the brunt of Sandy's angst here in South Florida. Nearby restaurant Dune Deck Cafe had some inside flooding, bad enough to get you to leave behind various sea life munchies. And just down the street, John G's was packed to the gills despite the knee-deep water in the parking lot.
We hope Yanni gets his wall fixed up quickly, and that he and his loved ones are a-OK -- though we do wonder if he blasts "Rainmaker" over speakers across his property whenever a storm hits.
We're going to go ahead and imagine he does.
