Ha Ha that ones very clever as well.

Oh go on then to bring it back into the factual but nicely tenuous, I repaired the drummer from Syd Arthur's music centre a little while ago, they're a local band and did an instore in my friends record shop when they released the last LP and he volunteered me to look at it, dry bearing in the turntable, took all of about 10 seconds to diagnose and not much longer to sort.

My friend has a few people from the arts as customers so thus far I've repaired turntables from 2 people in different bands, a society photographer and the guy who used to manage the Clash

Oh and for really tenuous a very early idler drive Micro Seiki I had a few years ago supposedly used to belong to one of the members of the Who but I don't know which one, it came from one of their roadies and he picked it up when it was lying about and was going to be chucked out. He thought someone picked it up in Japan in the early 70's but was more than a bit hazy on it original ownership.

Slightly off topic, but I was trying to remember that very sketch and who did it the other day after witnessing something very similar in a bike shop - are bike shops the new hi-fi shops? *




* possibly 10 years behind here, and I don't go in hi-fi shops anymore.

Well road cycling is supposedly the current midlife crisis fad so it's quite possible

Basically any hobby where middle aged (mostly) men can be persuaded to part with large sums of money for beautifully made but utterly pointless widgets and pedanglebangle springs falls into that category
