John McCusker (lonely & dejected)

All this adulation for Kate, everyone seems to have forgotten about me. I'm the one who plays fiddle and tells crap jokes in her backing combo. We've had our ups and downs (still do) but I think I also deserve a thread for my loyalty and devotion to her meteoric rise. Love John X

John,

I thought when I first saw your name beginning to appear in print that it must surely be the same guy I raved about for weeks when he turned up at our folk club (in the Forge) aged I guess about 12, accompanied I think by one of his teachers, and blew everyone away with the quality of his fiddle playing. Can you confirm?

weerover,

I don't know about Guest John McCusker, but Kate's partner John is the same guy who used to appear at Udingston Folk Club with his teacher, and they formed the school band Parcel of Rogues. From there he joined Battlefield Band, and then on to world domination with Kate.
More power to his elbow.

John/Dita.

John/Dita,

On reading the initial psot again I realise it almost certainly ain't John McCusker. I'm too trusting I guess, I thought it was just yer man being a wee bit self-ironic.

John McCusker is a brilliant musician, whether this is really you or not.

Saw the Battlefield Band three nights ago - missed you, John, and missed Brian! Anyway, I'm sure you're happy with where and what you are, and nobody's forgotten you. (Nobody female, that is ...:-) Good luck to both of you, and I hope you'll make it to the North of Germany some day.
