I got asked to stand in for a local charity night last night as one of their acts who was a guitarist/singer (Over backing tracks) was unfortunately taken ill, hastily put a set together and headed off! did about eight or nine songs and in walks Charlie Landsborough Jnr (Son of the famous country and western singer of the same name) who is a bit of a local celeb with his guitar, hears me playing the blues and steps right up to do a few numbers together. To be honest he was a better player than me (And had a nice relic strat too!) but it was such a buzz and we had the place absolutley rocking!

Several people took a load of photos (No vids unfortunately) so Ill upload them if I can, suufice to say it was a complete buzz and not really as hard as i thought it would be! heres to more of the same!
