Seven Thoughts and a letter from The Nora Breadstick Correctional Facility. Altona

Grand Prix week in Melbourne. Revhead heaven apparently: which got me thinking.....

If 110,000 people sit on the grass and watch 24 lunatics in very fast cars for five hours, they will probably create less carbon pollution per capita than musos driving to and from a jam session. Aren't statistics wonderful!

If all the rock guitarists in Melbourne played Smoke on the Water it would be neither entertaining nor particularly unusual.

You can fit 60 political pamphlets into a trombone case, and still not get caught smuggling them out of the country. I know, I've done it.

In Ireland, the difference between a violin and a fiddle is that the violin has a case.

There are 2,143 separate parts in a the average unweighted keyboard. Regrettably, they are often joined up.

It is possible to learn and then play every Coltrane solo ever recorded note for note. It is also very silly, and not something that John Coltrane would ever have done.

Summertime can be played at a jam session in a key other than A minor. This remains a theoretical concept.

Rotten Ronnie sends his regards from the Nora Breadstick Correctional Facility, where he is currently residing following an unfortunate misunderstanding at the Altona Dog Show
