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  ;)

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.
