Thank you leslie,

Needed something to cheer me up,

Love  the idea of the SOBWG and any other assorted instuments of musical destruction come to that!!

And thanks from me too, Leslie.

Brilliant. So funny.

And no, don't sell your guitar. Say it loud: "I'm a SOB and I'm proud!"

Up until March this year the acronym SOBWG referred to Sustainable Operations Board. Working Group, a body set by the Sustainable Development Commission, the now disbanded body set up in 2000 - which monitored and advised on some aspects government decision making. So I imagine that it's now reasonable to assume that a SOBWG is in all probability one of the Sad Old Bastards with Guitars.

However, some confusion may arise from your claiming to be a SOBSI. The person making such a claim may well be a fully-paid-up Sad Old Bastard sans Instrument, but he could also be a card-carrying member of the All Indonesia Centre of Labour Organizations (Sentral Organisasi Buruh Seluruh Indonesia).  

Bearing this in mind, you may want to think again.

Anyone wishing to accumulate a short set of cognate material might care to investigate John Hiatt's 'Master of Disaster', as featured by Dave Lewis of the Shrinks pretty much whenever we can get the gigs.
