April Fool's Special On MikeOldfield.com Mike says he realized he cannot live without his trusty guitars when he was explaining why he sold them in his autobiography. Mike will contact the buyers to get them back. He also doesn't want to be remembered for "Tubular Bells" and is asking fans for suggestions for a new name, under which the classic album will be re-released.

I don't know why people bother with April Fools jokes anymore, because it just does'nt work.

LOL, that was a good one. :) Pretty subtle but funny. And in fact, I can kind of picture Mike putting out a new song called "I Want My Guitars Back", to the tune of the Backyardigans' "I Want My River Back". Wouldn't sound all that bad, I think.

D'uh huh? Ya mean he DOESN'T want his guitars back? Darn...this is the fourth time I've been fooled today.  :O  :laugh: Just kidding. Only twice. No three. (Kids are on an AP rampage.) Heh....actually, once I was contacted by the former owner of my Appy mare named Dawn, wanting to know if she could buy her back.  :/

Dig up your guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then you'll get on your knees and pray
You wont get fooled again?
