Famous Ukulele players - part 1

Blog title says it all really... but I wanted to show that not all ukulele players are like George Formby or Tiny Tim - there are some very very cool ukers out there - take a look!

This will become a regular feature, and I will collate the famous ukers on the Famous Ukulele Page accessible from the menu at the top.  There is a link on that page that gives you access to all of my editions (now up to edition 13!!)

  2. Warren Buffett:


  3. Regarding Neil Armstrong, that is of course a famous picture. But was he really a ukulele player? Or did he pick up a uke that just happened to be there?

  4. I believe it has been reported elsewhere that he was a player - whether he was serious or just learning, I do not know. But it is accepted he requested a uke was there in quarantine for him

  5. Jeff Lynne:http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=jeff+lynne+ukulele&FORM=HDRSC2#view=detail&id=A5B6F5BBB2ED816805DF015E32C6CE734E709E95&selectedIndex=2
