Jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt spent most of his life in Paris, but he never took the Metro because he couldn't read -- words or music -- and didn't want to get off at the wrong stop.
During World War II, when Parisians were humming his melancholy hit "Clouds" and he always had a wad of francs in his pocket, Django rode in flashy new cars or hired limos. Just as often, he was broke and had to hoof it around Paris, followed by his brother, Joseph "Nin-Nin" Reinhardt, who toted his guitar.
