Re: SMOKING BY MASTERS

Roger Martin used to smoke a pipe between lessons. He once came in after a break and put his pipe in his pocket, and started the lesson. About 5 minutes later his jacket pocket started smoking.

Adrian's head of music. He also threw a couple of us out of the music school at the 2010 20-years reunion. Don't think we were supposed to be in there... Oops! :oops:

Re: C.H. CAPE PHOTO WANTED
