The new guitarist

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

A few years ago I would have said that there was no chance on earth that Boris Johnson would be the next Sisters guitarist. Now, apparently he's favourite. Then, again, I said the same about Trump.

Well, today's the day. See you on the other side.

Somewhere in France, there's a very nervous person sitting around, desperately trying to remember everything they've learned. No matter how good you are as a guitarist, learning off an entire set from scratch is daunting.

Well the dude should be safe in the knowledge that though we bicker Sisters fans are extremely tolerant, love the band to death and beyond. And will have his back.

At least he knows that once he has learned the setlist if won't change for the next 20 years.

Gary can't be as good as Gary can he?

Taking a fact that name Gary is in the top 80 male names by popularity in UK, there is a change that name of The Dude is Gary.
