Who needs rock stars when you have pipers? For over 150 years, pipers and drummers have been serving the fire service during parades, special events, conventions, retirements, ceremonies, and of course, funerals for our fallen. I still get chills when I hear bagpipes – anywhere, anytime, it never fails. There’s a swell of pride knowing that these are OUR rock stars. So, you can keep your Lil’ Wayne, Nickelback, and Justin Bieber – I’ll take pipes!
And for the knucklehead (and I say that fondly) who yelled “Freebird” during last Spring’s FDIC “Rally in the Alley” – thanks for the hilarious inspiration, Bro!
