CONFUSING?

The problem with having a popular name like Peter Doyle, is that you share it with hundreds of other folk and with the efficiency of internet search engines it is no wonder that this leads to confusion, even on supposedly reputable websites who seem unable to sort “t'other from which” when it comes to listing the achievements of “our” Peter Doyle.
In spite of internet evidence to the contrary , Peter is not, for instance, the Peter Doyle who was a piper on the Clan Sutherland Band recordings.   He may be Australian but can we imagine he found time to play the trumpet for the Laughing Clowns and all the other acts supported by Peter the trumpeter in addition to his singing, guitar playing and songwriting? Let's not forget the Psyclone Rangers, whose albums are also listed against credits to “our” Peter for the cover photography.

We all know Peter was very talented, but apparently not nearly so talented as other people think!  Let me know if you are aware of any other myths which need exploding!
