I don't even think about him as a Hearts player anymore. Just another 'what could've been' from our conveyor belt of crocks.

 

Between the Woman's Guild in the office recruiting and dishing out the t's and c's on their contracts,, Dougie Howser MD and Doctor Nick Riveira in the medical room, 5 Moray House placement students doing the sport science and Hoddit and Doddit as groundskeeers doing their weekly bob a job our players truly are ****ed.

Thanks i8. Inspirational stuff as usual. Do you offer such sage advice on the Fab Four as well? Love to hear your thoughts on Linda McCartney and Yoko.

Linda was lovely and my hatred towards Yoko is no more. It is difficult to hate a women in her mid 80s. I may even ease off Ann in 10 years.

 

They both inspired a shit load of amazing solo work too, so only fair to mention that.  I also find Lindas love of Scotland very warming.

Well thought off in Campbelltown with a nice memorial. Not much of a keyboard player though.

Proficient for sure. Being taught of a musical genius like McCartney for years, you are going to  be able to hold your own.

What worries me about Souttar is this: a torn Achilles tendon is an uncommon injury. For a player to get that injury twice, let alone three times, makes me wonder if there’s something the matter with his connective tissues.

Typical doubter with your medical nonsense...

Probably dislaying a level of expertise that rules him out of the threads on here then. The JKB Experts On Everything will soon put him and his medical knowledge to the sword.

Saw Wings at the Odeon on their first tour and was pleasantly surprised to find she could hold her own on the keyboard, though she didn't do much more than play chords along with the guitars. Importantly she didn't try to play anything she wasn't capable of playing but did get a telling off at one point for tinkling the keys between songs. As you'd expect with McCartney, every chord, note and voice was spot on and in this, again to my surprise, his missus made no mistakes with her backing vocals. You are so right, though, to say that learning from a musical genius ensures at least adequacy.

 

Off topic, I suppose, but the Odeon wasn't that far from Tynecastle (when you were young), and a lot closer if you ran:HeartsManspotrun:

Was at that one. Sound system went down for a while but they carried on regardless.

How did a thread about John Souttar descend into a discussion on seeing Wings at The Odeon almost 50 years ago?  Fwiw, I never saw Wings live, not my cup of tea, but my first gig was at The Odeon to watch a proper band - The Damned!

You must have been at the second performance, first went without a hitch, as far as I can remember, and I'd have remembered something like that, I'm sure.

Golden Earring for me! Drummer did a 5 minute solo then dived out over the drums, got up ran back and started again. No idea why!

I remember seeing Radar Love on TOTP, the drummer did have a habit of jumping over his kit.  Rat Scabies of The Damned often set his kit on fire before trashing it.  Drummers seem to be rock music's equivalent of goalies, a breed of their own and often as daft as a brush.

 

It reminds me of my favourite drummer joke...

 

Q. What's the difference between a drummer and a drum machine?

 

A. With a drum machine, you only need to punch the instructions in once.

John would've liked Jimmy. ;)

Awesome!

 

Magoos... that's even before my time but I remember the front of it (if it's the same place) as a kid in the High Street just across from John Knox's House...is that the one?

That's dangerous talk around these parts! LOL

Ahead of the curve though with all the plant based 'meat' available now.

They were compared to what was passed off as 'bacon' which was extraordinarily awful. One of the few foodstuffs truly outranked by cardboard.

Did see The Clash, The Specials and Thin Lizzy at the Odeon but my first was Santana at the Playhouse 😎

I like it when threads derail.

Boomtown Rats for me. 78 I think.

Punks my arse. Wonder what our punk legend thought of them.

 

Trying a further derailment.

First was Hawkwind in the Caley picture house Lothian road. Only knew one song, it was rubbish.

At Tiffany's perchance? Never seen so much spittle. Always best catching bands in small venues rather than e.g. stadiums. 7th September 1977. How time flies!

March 2021

 

Was orig out for season but progress to date has been good.

 

Do you risk an early return though even if all the tests/scans etc are passed ?
