Piero "Crazy Legs" Scaruffi is a legendary Italian-American hiker, historian, philosopher, poet, scientist, and art critic. He runs a website containing his music reviews, poetry, photography, and writings about various subjects. He is by many considered a "master patrician" with undeniable taste such as Korn, Yeah Yeah Yeah's, Aqua, Animal Collective and Xiu Xiu. He is also a prominent leader in the anti-web 2.0 movement. While visiting his site, you may think to yourself that the site hasn't been updated since the late '90s, which is still unknown to this day.

Perhaps he is best known for his essay on The Beatles, in which he addresses a fundamental flaw in the average rock critic's evaluation of the genre. It has, by Scaruffi's own words, "won several international awards as the most professional analysis of the career of pop group the Beatles ever written" (no mention of where these so-called international awards are directed from). The effect of this essay on the board is unmeasurable; /mu/ is torn between appreciating or despising the band and its impact on popular music.
