Barrack Obama is going to be the new principal I heard
Hi ArfonHi mate! Wasn't you was it??!? :S
Anyway, good job at the weekend. Was a pleasure! See you soon no doubt
So you would be taking a pay cut to join them then?Hi Arfon
No this is Chris please thank the band for making me feel so welcome again and well played yourself both nights ! I only logged on to dispel these rumours that seem to be going around.
I am sure that when Grimethorpe announce a new principle cornet 4 bars rest or the bandsmen will be the
place to read about it not in a speculative forum where words have seemingly come out of my mouth.
P.s is it really £25,000p.a. I heard it was more ;-)
I wouldn't say that. Grimey is part of the brass band movement. Something seems to have gone terribly wrong and there are probably lessons to be learned that would benefit other bands. As my granny used to say, "Learn by other people's mistakes, 'cos you'll never live long enough to make them all yourself".After all, in all honesty, it's none of our business, really.
I heard that it was not an 'official' Grimethorpe concert, although it has been on their website, and it was according to my source, primarily arranged by Roger.Possibily not; it may be that RW felt that being part of a tribute to someone like Dave Barraclough was more important than his personal feelings toward the band management ... ?
