    I lost track of how many times I watched it. The combination of the drums and bagpipes is incredibly complimentary. That really surprised me.

    Did anybody else see Mas playing bagpipes?

    and then there was the boy from Scotland at school in England.

    His mother visited him and found him sobbing on his bed.

    what's the matter, she asked?

    he said the boys in the rooms on either side are horrible.

    one screams at me and gnashes his teeth.

    the other bangs on the wall.

    and all I do is sit here quietly and play my pipes.

    If ever a song and an instrument were made for each other, the bagpipes and Amazing Grace are that combination.

    It always brings a tear to my eyes. So much to remember.


    Thank you

    couldn't have said it better myself.

    Anyone know what the little flute is called that guy was playing at the intro to Amazing Grace?

    WWI IIRC

    He didn't get the tanks but he got the pipers. And thanked the high command for them.

    After that the Germans wanted the pipes declared an illegal weapon of war.

    Outstanding performance.

    I've made it clear to everyone in my family that when I catch the "train" i want Amazing Grace played by a bag piper at my funeral.
