Linda Lampenius

Answer:  A young, blonde, busty, European girl that can pick a fiddle better than any devil down in Georgia.

Question:  What would it take for you to sit down and enjoy a classical violin concerto?

Your worst nightmare?  Maybe, but it's the otherwise boring violin-playing world's equivalent to Tiger Woods, except this pussycat wears Spandex.

Linda Lampenius also known as Linda Brava has graced the cover of countless European magazines and our very own homegrown Playboy Magazine.

Born in Finland, Linda began playing the violin at the age of five. By the time she was eight she became a member of the Helsinki Juniorstrings and eventually served

as their concertmaster.  From there she won a seat to study in the renowned Sibelius Academy in Helsinki where she became concertmaster of the Conductor Class Orchestra.  After graduation she played with the Helsinki Symphony before being swept away to take the position of 1st violin with the Finnish National Opera in 1990.  A few years later she was "discovered" after appearing on a UK TV show called "Eurotrash."  From that point on the entire world has been her stage.

Linda continues to make appearances on "Eurotrash" and has received offers to do other television appearances including one on "Baywatch," which seems appropriate as many people compare her looks to those of Pamela Anderson.  But can Pamela hold and maneuver a bow like Linda? We think not.  "Linda can do things with a fiddle that will bring tears to your eyes," wrote one European journalist.

And if talent and beauty weren't enough, Linda even sells her own brand of apple cider in Finland and Sweden.  She also models underwear, lingerie and swimsuits, but in the end it all goes back to the music.  "Just as I know I'll eat, breathe and sleep each day, I know I'll have music in my life."

Just don't forget the Spandex.
