    Re: Favorite Thile Quotes?

    Thanks for that - i have'nt heard the expression 'spruced-up' in an age, it brought a smile to my face.

    Just thought I'd pop by and pick the brains and, hopefully, pique the interest of some regulars here.

    Re: Tim O'Brien and Del McCoury video

    For me, it's not a question of either Mr McCoury or Mr O'Brien being modest or likable or indeed eloquent ... it's nothing to do with my comments

    Indeed, I'm not judging either man's personality...
