HEY, SIX OF ONE

Unfortunately, Robb didn't buy tickets to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers, rather the Red Hot Chili Pipers - "the most famous bagpipe band on the planet," or so their website claims.

The Pipers have a hot bass bagpipe player called, Louse.

That is one mistake he will never be allowed to forget.
Even buying her a Ferrari might not be enough to stop the sound of bagpipes from haunting her dreams.

Let he who hasn’t accidentally set up a Valentine Day date involving bagpipes castthe first stone

They are for real, seems to have quite a following, and even play some rock. Here's their version of We Will Rock You https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WbY8eNkaW4k

When a Scot has a sheep's stomach, he has two choices. If he is hungry, he makes a haggis. On the other hand, if he is deaf, he makes bagpipes.

In a fit of temporary insanity last September, my wife and I went to see the Red Hot Chilli Pipers. They are a "bagrock" band with 2 drummers, 3 Pipers, a keyboardist, 2 guitar players, a vocalist, and a partridge in a pear tree. We had a great time and enjoyed the concert tremendously. And that is a sentence I never thought I would write about bagpipes.

Sounds great!

Peter M, I think you found Freddie Mercury's private lagoon in the Lake of Fire.

Here is Peter M's link as a link Chili Pipers

This looks more fun than I imagined!


Hey, I have seen the Pipers, and this guy has nothing to complain about. For one thing, the Pipers are louder than the Peppers. WITHOUT amps.

Is there a difference?
