Not sure where to start here. But what a great collection of stories!

And yes, I understand who you come from with the YouTube trap.

Great writing Rob.

There's nothing quite so fine as messing about with typewriters and Triumphs

What a great write-up, you're true old-school, Rob!

... although I could get into a discussion about the Ultimate Strat Tone... there's Hank in one corner, Hendrix in another, and then Stevie Ray Vaughan and EC, and David Gilmour (personal fave). Too many corners in that room...

Thank you Scott, Tony and Rino for your comments.
Tony, yes, I noted that you are a Triumph (sports cars and typewriters) fan. So too is typewriter wizard Derrick Brown in Brisbane ("car Stag" is his sign-on).
And Rino, I knew we shared interests after reading your fine book.
I am going to take "true old school" as a compliment - ?
