Memories of childhood, RIP Bert, you unleashed a whole generation of little pluckers into the world, some of whom turned into very rich pluckers indeed.

Bert was a permanent feature on the 10am Saturday Morning Club hosted by Brian whatshisface.

Yep, sad to see him go. I was going to say it was a sad year for ex-guitarists because Les Paul had carked it as well, but was amazed to find out LP checked out in Aug 09! Christ, doesn't time fly when you are getting on a bit?

Editted to add, Gary Moore checked out just over a year ago. They must have a cracking sessions band in the afterlife! :)

Bert Weedon's "Play in a Day" was the book that came along with my shiny new acoustic guitar on Christmas morning 1997. Because this book had come free with my christmas present, my scrooge of a father refused to get me proper guitar lessons...

... I still can't play the guitar!
