I'm saying this and leaving the discussion:


"Regardless, his performance was deplorable... the version I got was he did not fix the issue, he chose to be rushed on stage and found out the hard way why you don稚 disregard maintenance"


YOU were NOT THERE. You do NOT KNOW what happened. You are relying on HEARSAY which in and of itself is assumption.



I TEXTED the guy as a fellow piper and FRIEND and asked what happened and OFFERED my support in lieu of apologizing for the vitriolic criticising. How many of YOU did that before passing judgement?

I publicly offered, if anyone knew him, to have them reach out to me.

Don稚 let your personal attachment to him, could sound judgement

Boy are there some right sanctimonious arseholes on here.
Just listen to some of you, "I take it a spare chanter, I wouldn't take on a job above my ability etc etc."

You make me want to puke. If the guy screwed up, he screwed up. Why do you have to be so nasty about it?

Get a life.

You shouldn稚 play on international TV if you don稚 want international criticism, alternatively one could not overstep their abilities... you don稚 see me hosting a Radio show, because I don稚 have the voice for it...

Always play to your abilities

Give it a break eh? Accidents happen. All you're doing is stirring things up, which really doesn't help. "one could not overstep their abilities". Just listen to that. Such arrogance.
Suppose you're the 'big I am', eh?

Accidents happen yes. But I知 not the one picking a fight here. And I知 not the one who made a fool of himself on live TV

Something falling into your chanter stock? Not a bloody accident - a disgrace is what that is. Maintenance is not an optional component of playing the Great Highland Bagpipe.

I used to use a Ross system - Every. Single. Part. was verified to be securely fitted and in proper order - Every. Single. Time. I played. Here's the shocker: By keeping on the state of my instrument like flies to you-know-what, I never:

1. have had
2. currently have
-or-
3. ever will have

very far to go to get back to 100%.

Our instrument seems to be the subject of dubious standards, many people defending disgraceful posers for one reason or other. As a reality check, ask yourself: If a violinist (or clarinetist, trumpeter, etc) made the equivalent showing as this "piper", what would be said?

So what did he say exactly happened?
It would be great to hear it from him.
I don't have facespace, so I can only go by what is on this board (or the youtube video)
