    Hmmmm. No instant recognition by a fellow fan. No nothing in fact. Zip. Not a sausage. C'mon guys & gal, I thought I'd flush out one or two other fans in here - the band won a Grammy for their last CD.

    Bloody hell :roll:
    No, it's not Madonna, and it's not me - although he does resemble my brother come to think of it. I'll take that as a great compliment Bennett.

    It's Walter Becker - one half of Steely Dan. I just got their new CD "Everything Must Go" - it's great. Their previous CD "Two Against Nature" won their first Grammy a year or two ago. They've been going since the early 70's. Walter plays guitar and sometimes bass - the main guy is Donald Fagen who does vocals and keyboards.

    Of course, Walter Becker. How could I forget. :? :wink:

    Sorry HellDad, but compliment or nay, whenever I try to picture you it'll be Walter that I see. :p

    Well that can be easily fixed, Bennett. Just visit HellDad's site via the Web links page to find out what a HellDad really looks like.

    ( although somehow I think that it is your daughter that will get all the compliments :) )

    That makes us even Bennett - I always picture you as that guy in your avatar pic.

    How else do you think an old fart like me gets away with appearing on stage? - it certainly ain't my singing ability.

    My latest pic is of a tank on a open range firing a round, with a BIG muzzle flash and the round several meters (and more feet) infront of the flash.... cool desktop piccy ;o)

    Are you going to show us the pic Snake :?:

    I once went to an open day at the artillery range at Holsworthy (SW edge of Sydney). The army bussed us out to the firing site, and issued everyone with earplugs. We stood about 20 metres behind three 105mm field guns as they fired live ammo. It was rather like the view from the BF defgun or tanks - you could see the shells fly most of the way to the target area.

    Throw some glasses and beard on him, thin his hair out a little and voila ... it's Walter Becker. :D

    As for my avatar HellDad ... that is me. :( ;)

    Lucky I didn't put up a picture of the other half of Steely Dan - that Donald Fagen is one real ugly dude. If you're mildly interested you could check out some images of Steely Dan. There's thumbnails with links to bigger images (~400k). Now you've got me rambling about my favourite current band - I'll stop :cry:
