Don't mistake lack of talent for genius.

As a folk instrument, played down to fit with other instruments, I love them.  And even the lone piper at a wedding or funeral can be moving and atmospheric.  It is just the buggers who won't wear them without wearing the kilt and the bank-manager/golfer long socks that really drive me mad.  "JOLLY" seems to be a word they have never contemplated.


Oh those socks! Just like boy scouts with flashes! How sexy - for a guy with no imagination.

Even the 600 million quid lead Beatle couldn't make the dreaded pipe sound cool;

OK guys, so you want to see sexy and cool bagpipe playing?

Then go here and enjoy a piece of bagpiping history.

Am I mistaken, or is Bon Scott trying to indicate to all the young ladies around him, exactly what's on his mind as he plays the pipes  Wink

Look at the Pandora's Box you've opened now Dave!!

Acka/Dacka with 'A Long Way To The Shop If You Want A Sausage Roll'.

I worked with AC/DC a year or two before that clip was shot.

Here's the young Angus Young:



And of course, prior to AC/DC Bon Scott had been in a pipe band in Fremantle - near Perth, Western Australia.

Bagpipes were something of a fad in Oz rock for a while.  John Farnham used them in what became the biggest selling Australian album of all time ..... and the very first CD produced and released here way back when:

Like I said, they are fine as part of something else.

Cheers,

Jeez, I hate that band. The 'pipes only reinforce my original feelings.

Like the piccy, though.
