Saving Ink


That Bert Weedon had a neat trick, signing “Best Wishes Bert Weedon” with just one B and one W! (But how did he play-in-a-day holding the guitar like that?)

This one is a present from Carole and there is still more to come

  1. My old mate Martin Meads, the drummer in the band I sang with , The Motherfolkers, used to be in Bert’s backing band. Not an easy man to work with, apparently. (Bert, not Martin!!)

  2. I always remember his claim of being the only guitarist that could play 5000 notes in one minute, any one remember ?

  3. Ah, Bert Weedon – always reminds me of Bonzo Dog Band’s “We Are Normal” !!
