  1. Here is a clip of Jan Fedder, also interesting for me as a Beatles fan is the bass players guitar, a rare Höfner 500/1 bass guitar as used by Paul McCartney. A major boost for this bass came in early 1961 when it caught the eye of a young McCartney. In July 1961, before Stuart Sutcliffe decided to leave the Beatles, he briefly lent McCartney his bass guitar which he had bought in Hamburg until the latter could earn enough to buy a Höfner bass guitar of his own in 1961. Karl Höfner, founded the Höfner company in the city of Schönbach in 1887, at a time when the city, later part of the Czech Republic, was populated by Germans. He soon became the largest string instrument manufacturer in the country. During the war the Höfner company became involved in producing wooden crates and soles for boots for the German Army. After the war when the Germans were expelled from the Sudetenland, Höfner moved to West Germany where they opened their new factory in Möhrendorf in 1948. Much of Höfner's popularity is attributed to Paul McCartney's use of the Höfner 500/1 bass throughout his career. This violin-shaped model is commonly referred to as the "Beatle bass".
  2. Here is the clip again which is now back on Youtube.
  3. Yes as Graeme said he eventually got kicked out of office, and ironically the Labour party suspended him indefinitely for making Antisemitic comments. You could not make it up. In Scotland we are no longer allowed to sell edged weapons of any kind, even antiques, apparently to stop knife crime, again the irony as the people who commit knife crime just go to the local supermarket and buy a kitchen knife which is not regulated and costs them a couple of pounds. Needless to save knife crime has gone up in Scotland since the new laws came into force, so another example of law abiding collectors paying the price for laws that are ill conceived. I agree that modern knifes and the like should be banned but antiques should be exempt, who is going to spend £1000 on a Scottish broadsword for example to commit knife crime?
  4. Hi Felipe, welcome to the forum, Leon is the best person to answer your question hopefully he will sign in soon, however some of the other members are good with Brodie helmets so may be able to help too, not my area of expertise I'm afraid.

  11. These Mark Felton productions are very good.
  12. When posting you tube clips you may notice the following error, tech support are aware of this and hopefully it will be resolved soon. The problem is apparently not you tube but our server which will no longer allow certain clips to be played especially the more modern ones. In order to fix this we need to move to a new server which is proving difficult. I also cannot delete the older clips which have disappeared over time. But my IT people are working on the best way to move to a new server, and once this is done the problem should be resolved, hopefully soon. 403 Forbidden Access to this resource on the server is denied!
