Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. msr

    msr LE

    Are there any famous serving or ex-military musicians (apart from James Blunt, obviously)?

  2. Glen Miller :lol:

    Wasn't Graham"Suggs" Macpherson of Madness a Guardsman?
    Billy Bragg.

    I'm thinking contemporary and to define it further - guitar based rock with a thumping beat, and yes there is a hidden agenda here ;)

  4. Jimi Somerville. Now there's a man's man!
    Jimi Hendrix
    One of Motorhead's guitarists - who left a few years ago - Wurzel.
    Watty Buchan from the Exploited - ex Royal Scots

    I reckon the recently sacked bassist from The Darkness (Frankie Poullain) must have been SAS...have you seen his moustache?!!!:wink:
  5. was a 'Stereophonic' in somewhere?

    a civvy could not come up with the line, "HURRY UP AND WAIT"
  6. Come on then msr.. Hidden agenda?
  7. I hate to pizs on msr's hidden agenda but to save begining a new thread, are there any celebritys in general, (singers, actors, comedians etc.)
  8. Jimi Hendrix
  9. Lenny Kravitz( sp)?
  10. I just think its nice that the chinless wonder James Blunt has give us all a new rhyming slang for a word beloved of soldiers everywhere
  11. How the hell has Blunt become a bloody Brit award winner. He writes sh*tty schoolboy lyrics - "you're beautiful, you're beautiful it's true, you're beautiful, you're beautiful and I don't know what to do". That is pretty piss poor prep. He has a girly voice with no soul and the charisma of a bleached dishcloth. On the other hand, he's an ex-bill oddie so fair play to the weasely talent-vortex.
  12. Well it didn't take too long for this to turn into a James blunt bashing thread, theres plenty of others about.
  13. Axl Rose
  14. Bruce Dickinson
  15. Met a few who played the PICCOLO.
