Very cool..

And who, besides me, owns genuine Scottish made GHB (Great Highland Bagpipes)?
Mine are over 100 years old.

Never thought about Rock and Roll...

Reggae maybe, but rock and roll ?

I've never heard bagpipes sound uncool. Of course this might have something to do with me having Scottish blood flowing through my veins, I don't know.

As a matter of fact, I've requested that there be a bagpipe player and keg beer at my memorial when I croak.

Seriously

"me having Scottish blood flowing through my veins"

I have Scotch whisky flowing through mine -- does that count?

Maybe not really R&R, but here's my

No pipes (though they'd fit right in) but there IS a bodhran and a tin whistle!

Some great lines in there:

"Jager bombs & double shots,
The underagers think its tops,
We'll spike the drinks & pay the cops,
We got us an Irish pub.

Plasma screens & neon lights,
Kara-farkin-oke nights,
The bouncers they can pick the fights,
We'll call it an Irish pub"

FYI the GHB (Great Highland Bagpipes) are pitched in Bb.

He also plays the pipes solo.. superbly.

OffKilter. They played at Canada Pavilion at WDW EPCOT for many years. They'd play covers of famous rock songs as well.
