Black Friday

We’ve had several enquiries about our Black Friday sale. We’re sorry to disappoint you but, as we are not an American company, we prefer to offer you great value year round rather than have inflated prices so as to give you a huge discount on one day of the year.  We even passed the forex discount on our newest Duponts to you, the customer, instead of taking it for ourselves; not the best idea from a business perspective but it was the right thing to do from an ethical perspective.

Perhaps if more people switched to this we would live in a more content world…

Andy Fraser dies

Although not our usual genre we could not let the fact that Andy Fraser, the bass player of classic rock band Free, has died at the age of 62 pass without comment.

Fraser had been battling both cancer and AIDS, but the cause of death has not yet been announced. The London-born musician died Monday (March 16) at home in California.

He co-wrote the band’s 1970 hit ‘All Right Now’ but left the group in 1972 to form Sharks with guitarist Chris Spedding. He then formed the Andy Fraser Band before moving to California and going on to write for artists such as Robert Palmer, Joe Cocker and Rod Stewart.

Blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa paid tribute to Fraser on Twitter, writing: “I am extraordinarily sad to hear of the passing of Andy Fraser. He was one of the greatest and I was proud to call him my friend.”
