Fats Waller and fans in Glasgow for a gig at The Empire in 1938. I think HH took the photo.

When Fats Waller, his wife Anita, and Ed Zirkeby strolled
down the gangplank of the Transylvania at Greenock one
July afternoon in 1938, they were greeted by some very
familiar sounds. Billy Mason's Empirex Orchestra, with
Duncan Whyte blowing plenty of Armstrong phrases on
his trumpet, welcomed the American visitors by playing
Waller's best-known tune, Honeysuckle Rose. The following
Monday night, at the Glasgow Empire, the reception was
even more overwhelming. It was, Fats assured the jubilant
audience, the greatest reception he had ever had in his life.
He responded to it by sitting down again at the piano,
with a plaid beret perched on top of his head, and playing
Loch Lomond dead straight. Only when a man high up
in the gallery shouted 'Hey, Fats, swing it P did the pianist
unbend and start twisting the melody to his own ends.

Okay, I'm not "famous" per-say, but I'm well known to my family.

But does it spell and know when to use an apostrophe?

Tommy Sheridan, today on St.Vincent Street, having some banter with some workmen.

You?


Not the last person i have seen but when i did see him he was crossing over from George square going into the chambers.

When he saw me driving towards him the ****** started limping so i would slow down.

Wrong choice dipshit... ::): ::):
