    In Hypnotherapy there is a technique called "modelling" in which under trance conditions you choose to become the person that you most consider has the qualities you wish to emulate for your particular chosen task. So who would you choose and why?:)

    personally because of his charm and abilities on flugel for me it is Mr John Doyle...
    for style and elegance Audrey Hepburn...
    for fitness "sportacus"...
    for business acumen Sir Alan Sugar...

    For playing the Trombone. Mr Joseph Alessi. His Carmen Suite still amazes me.
    For being the man I want and try to be, I have no idea. The exact opposite of the qualities of some of people I grew up with.

    Fred Dibnah -
    for his unbelievable head for heights, knowledge of things mechanical (particularly old and steamy) and zest for life.

    In Banding I grew up wanting to be Wynton Marsalis and played allong to all his CD's ( clasical style that is ) then i discovered David Daws and that golden sound...

    If i could have a grain of either of the talent that these two display i would be happy...

    In life it would have to be my dear mom and dad ( Awww bless )

    :clap: Nice one Mr B

    For me one man I admired above all, my grandfather. Taught me to fish, play rugby, drink beer. And above all a great guiding light.

    Outside of family and friends Martin Johnson is a man who I never tire of listening to. What a leader.

    I don't even want to know about some of these! :)

    My two heroes while growing up were Fr Jock McGovern, my music teacher and Ernie Appleyard who conducted Eagley when I first started playing.

    As for later life, Neil Parkinson comes close to being a hero.
