Would you believe that I have the exact same mandolin as the one behind you there. It was my grandfathers. We are mostly all musical Hammonds :)

wow really? that is cool. Yeah, I remember when I first start getting into music I was very proud when the guy in the music store showed me Hammond keyboards :)

I should spend more time playing mandolin really. I love the sound of it. So far I have only managed a few chords and the riff from Losing My Religion lol

I haven't played in a while but in the 90s I played in a bluegrass group. Most of the Hammond folk that I ever knew had music in them. My dad doesn't as his mom's folk couldn't play but he sure would like to LOL

that is cool and nice to think about Hammonds being musical. My uncle plays guitar and writes songs etc.

And of course there is also Albert Hammond. Unfortunately no relation there though lol

Its true :) also it is a very very old name. It is mentioned in the bible and in many old roman records, sometimes written as Hammon by the romans :) When the Saxons came into Britain there were Hammans from the Rhine area with them, also when William the Conqueror came in 1066 his main man of arms was Robert Fitz Hamon :)

:) I should be greeted like King then if I ever visit Hastings :)

You really do sound like you know your stuff.

I do worry you know. I am the last Hammond male in our family that could pass the name on. All of my cousins and sister are girls. So it is up to me to pass the name on or it ends with me. And lets put it this way I am not having much look in finding a mother to the next master Hammond lol
