Professor Plays The Clarinet While Covered In Bees

Professor Norman Gary is not an ordinary performer. An emeritus professor of apiculture at the University of California (Davis), Gary also plays Dixieland music in a human ensemble called the Beez Kneez Jazz Band.

He generally goes solo for the bee-encrusted gigs. Hollywood has used Gary’s bee-wrangling talents, though seldom his clarinet, in more than a dozen movies.

Among them: The X Files; Fried Green Tomatoes; Invasion of the Bee Girls; and Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh. See the whole story in The Guardian.
