I have noticed that there are a lot of IT People are guitarists out there. It might even be a British standard as this shot was taken at a user group conference run by Entropy, a part of the British Standards Institute. Entropy is a suite of software built around health and safety compliance, risk management, environmental protection etc. and these guys are two of the developers. One of the management team had a hit with Neanderthal Man with the Hotlegs (forerunners of 10cc).
They are not alone. My mate Michael embarrassed me a couple of years ago in Selfridges by picking up a guitar I was looking to buy and laying into an impromptu “I saw her standing there”. The staff and customers were clapping and cheering which was a lot different than the thanks he got from all the support calls he used to resolve.
So if you want to make a name as an IT Pro maybe it’s time to work on those riffs.
