What a brilliant pic! Could you add an Iron Maiden track to it, say Number of the Beast or Hallowed be thy Name?

That little figure on the right side of the Gate --- I hope he's the 'inferior British masses' heading in the opposite direction!

And that he's singing: "[[...] Oh Death where is thy sting-a-ling-a-ling; Oh Grave thy victory."

I think if one is religious it is important to be creative as well
especially amongst the higher echelons.

Richards Dawkins is a tragic example of a person who is neither religious nor creative.
I think TheGlovenor falls into this category as well.Better get in touch with your creative side mate. Mr. Singh may be a fruit cake but occasionally he does show a glimmer of intelligence and has an exemplary ability to concoct
surrealistic thought cameos in Dadaist style.

What a peculiar comment to make.

I am a musician playing the piano, guitar with my main instrument being bass guitar. I have played in bands now for around 16 years.

Creative enough to pass your standard, or am I forever banished because you think I lack creativity?

Yeah Glovy weren’t you in that band called the Monkees – always monkeying around?

Now, now kiddies, you are both wonderful human beings, and God loves you both (I accept that The Glovner may contest that view, but, hey, no need to make an issue of that). But better yet if you could agree to differ and continue to post thoughts worthy of His Grace to improve the cultural resource of this site.

You have both so much to offer.

Better, surely, than to waste your creativity on slagging each other off, which gets tiresome after a while.

My aged grandmother used, annoyingly, to put it thus "birds in their little nest agree"

Have a great day, both of you

No real issue with that which is why I had already pointed out in another thread that I am not bothering to reply directly to D.Singh (who I notice is still calling me "Glovy", oh well a small irratating child will push and push against its parents until it gets a reaction) anymore as it is a pointless action.

All I commented on was the fact that I find it s strange statement to make that I lack any creativity, especially based on my posting on a website that really don't say much about other facets of my life.

Strange is all.

So D.Singh is a fruit cake with a glimmer of inteligence. Sounds a bit nutty to me.

Hey! What does everybody make of Dawkins praising the KJV Bible and now his forum has closed down. a road to Damascus conversion maybe?

Just to kepp on topic also: it's all an abotion if you ask me.

Mr Glovner,
I hate to admit it but we have something in common,
Guitars, started in classical ended up with bottle neck, playing just for amusement.

There is nothing creative about playing a musical instrument in itself. Unless one plays for a band like YES, creative bass players are, as a general rule, just one gigantic pain in the arse for all concerned.

Just stick to playing the notes dear boy, and keep in proper time with the drummer, and I am sure your fellow players will not so often desperately attempt to turn your amplification down.

Len, why would you hate to admit it.

You never know, the only thing that we may not agree on is the existence of a supernatural being controling the universe.

"There is nothing creative about playing a musical instrument in itself."

True, but there is something creative in the ability to create your own music. I did play in an originals band for some time. Got close on a few occasions, publishing deals, paid to go down to some London studios but just never managed to break through. The sad thing is that this happens to so many good bads with such original sounds becuase the music industry these days is generally taken up by the Simon Cowell type bands on a never ending production line of crappy music.

The originals band I played for only finally gave in about a year and a half ago and after my wedding (humanist ceremony mind) I have had the time to get back into it and joined a covers band. So call me a sell out if you want but any extra cash will help once the mini one arrives.

"Unless one plays for a band like YES, creative bass players are, as a general rule, just one gigantic pain in the arse for all concerned."

Horribly generalistic and opinion only. I have met many bass players who thought they were creative. What they turned out to be is guitar players that weren't good enough and got landed playing bass becuase they thought it to be a an easy instrument.

Big difference between being able to play along to tunes on a bass and actually being able to play a bass.

"Just stick to playing the notes dear boy, and keep in proper time with the drummer, and I am sure your fellow players will not so often desperately attempt to turn your amplification down."

There are many notes in a scale though and many different methods to keep time with the drummer while keeping things interesting.

And I have never to date been asked to turn down, which is something when I play through a 350watt Hartke Head with a 4x10 cab with alluminium cones. At the same time though in all venues so far I haven't had it up past 5.
