There are times when you get to meet famous people, or make friends with famous people through your fabulous friends.
During the recording of my 1997 cd 'The Romance of the Pipes' I got to work with sound engineer Barry Ainsworth from London who's worked with some of the most notable names in rock and roll, and some of their well-known tracks. I got to learn that Barry worked with David Bowie, Queen, and Genesis, Supertramp, Rush, The Kinks and Deep Purple.....and it was through Barry that I got to talk to Phil Collins, who's an amateur piper and now fan of the band. I sent Phil a band t shirt, and he sent us an autographed drum head from his kit. A tradition was born.....
