    Dear John Burns, Could you please point out to me where it is against the rules to quote a private message. Many thanks, David James

    2009 British Open

    Quite frankly my antipodean friend, I don’t give a fig whether you’re interested or not. My grievance is that all this detracts from a superb contest, splendidly run, excellently adjudicated, with a fine result you do not have to agree with. If Mr. Mead had waited a couple of weeks to...

    2009 British Open

    Well, now, Mr Taylor, you might think they are the least (I believe thats what you meant to write, not last) interesting points that are at issue, but I and a number of others believe them to be be extremely relevant. In all honesty Mr Taylor my discourtesy pales into insignificance in...

    2009 British Open

    I don't think he's shown any courtesy to the adjudicators, the management of the British Open, and has made a number of unsubstantiated comments about the adjudicators hearing and mental faculties which are tantamount to harassment or victimisation. Furthermore what protection do the...

    2009 British Open

    That's your opinion, and you're entitled to it. I've not seen it written in tablets of stone whereby it is rude to post private messages. You write as if I am the only one complaining about Mr Meads behaviour, I suggest you take a look at the comments section of 4barsrest. There again it might...

    2009 British Open

    His father, Harry Mortimer (the Pope) had the perfect answer for this thread:- "The winners can smile, the others can please themselves" There was an expletive in the middle. One serious point is that SM would be in deep do doo, if he'd spoken to HM on the stage after the contest they way...

    Reply to Mr Mead Almost lost for words Mr. Mead, I don’t believe it. Apparently you weren’t lost for words with Mr Mortimer after the result, some of them rather colourful I’m led to believe. If your web site is not a public forum for the greater glorification of self, where the public are...

    2009 British Open

    The Open, ABBA, and a disgruntled conductor! I'm writing to say how disappointed I am that more than 36 hours after Mr Mead's outburst ABBA hasn't responded in a more supportive way towards the adjudicators concerned. To issue a statement that merely says, 'we will have a meeting with Mr...

    Death of Geoff Whitham.

    I was there at the Albert Hall, and believe me it was magic. Dyke gave an inspired performance and Geoff stood out above them all, even the great Maurice Murphy, that day. I can still hear the performance in my head and it makes me cry with tears of joy and sadness. DJ

    Death of Geoff Whitham.

    I have been extremely fortunate to know Geoff since I was a fifteen year old on an NYBBGB course at Bradford. He turned up with his pal Maurice Murphy on a day when the band was split up into groups for a competition. They decided that there was going to be an extra group and I was privileged to...

    Sad passing of Neil Ferguson

    It is with the deepest sadness I have to report the passing this morning of Neil Ferguson, former chairman and soprano cornet of Granite City Brass. I have the most enormous respect for Neil; who was a true bandsman, gentleman, and one of those people without whom bands would cease to be. Our...

    Shock big-name departures at Grimethorpe

    No, just the choral section. Though it might be a good test to see how many real friends are there and prepared to put up with a "numb bum" for my sake. There again some might stay to see me cremated! DJ
