I've always liked Brian Taylor's sound! I've always maintained that he stepped down at Faireys far too early. When you place his solo recordings side by side as a compilation, he is a very polished performer.
And you've heard every single cornet player in every single lower section band have you?
Dyl, go easy on Ian Perks -- don't take him so literally. When Berry Gordy stated that Michael Jackson was the finest entertainer ever (at Jackson's memorial service/concert), do you think he'd heard every entertainer in the world right from the beginning? Of course not!
Thanks Dave, but I'm sorry, if I see something I disagree with, I'll reply to it. Ian's 'outrageous' claim that started this off, here: http://www.themouthpiece.com/vb/showpost.php?p=683144&postcount=188 , is an example of such a case. Ok, maybe my last 2 posts in this thread were uncalled-for, and more to the point, off-topic, so I'll apologise for that.Brian's got a point, Dyl, and I don't know if you're taking it or not... You do ride roughshod over [translation: mock] Ian regularly.
Sure, point taken, but that won't be the case for much longer, as I've been waiting for some time now to be taken off the moderator list! Then I can, like all non-'staff', use the ignore function to stop me seeing the drivel posted by some, then removing the temptation for me to speak my mind! Of course, that works i nthe opposite direction - in that being a non-mod, others will be able to ignore me as well, so we can all be happy!!not qualities we want to see on this forum, much less in a moderator.
Thanks.I think you do a good job in all other aspects here
Exactly the same feeling I get when having to read his posts!but often find myself wincing when I see you respond unkindly to Ian.
James Fountain - GUS. Absolutely stunning sound. Not even the finished article yet but his sound and tone is just world class already.
Kirsty's got a world class sound as well with us, but to be honest i think that's pretty common knowledge so i'm surprised she hasn't been mentioned as much as i would expected.
Also as a youngster one man who really impressed and inspired me was John (Jackie) Spowart of Bo'Ness SA - a no-fuss, no theatrics, pure and musical player who played purely for SA purposes week in, week out. There are no doubt countless more like him out there - not "big names" but folks who others appreciate and are inspired by to play.
