Well I supposed it had to happen sometime...... Hello all you tMPers out there, my names Steve Burgess aka WhatSharp? (or WhatStep? to some after falling off the stage at the areas this year), many of you may remember me from such classics as Happy Tmp Day, tMP Brother 2005, WhatSharps World Of Wierd, the Pop-up Avatar and many many more (most instantly forgettable ). I have been playing sop for about 22 years (and boy my chops are tired) ever since I was found lurking in the back of a school cupboard with a trumpet trying to evade our tyrannical School Band Conductor (god bless you Harry White ). In that time I've only played in 2 bands, Grimsdyke Brass in Harrow (yes there really IS a place called Grimsdyke) and for the last 4 years with Yiewsley and West Drayton band. I'm married to my long suffering band widow wife, have two kids one tuba player ( age 11) and a wanna be cornet player (as soon as shes old enough!), and am caretaker of the Evil Animal Emporium, consisting of 2 dogs, a cat, a rabbit, several tropical fish and about 14-15 rats. all the best and happy posting Steve aka WhatSharp?
