Re: Oldest pipe band member

I believe in the old adage 'you are only as old as you feel'
Ergo, I am the oldest living piper because I feel like I am

Re: Another Odd Duck Music Question...

Oh yeah
Sometimes referred to as an "ear worm".
Happens to me all the time, and not just pipe tunes.

Re: Band Practice

And the reason I left my band,those that promise faithfully to

Re: Piper Cuffed and roughed for playing too loud on the Royal mile!
