*SIR* Eddie Kramer...???
« on: April 28, 2010, 10:28:22 am »

I'm rather puzzled by this Prosoundweb page:

 http://www.prosoundweb.com/article/adk_endorsed_by_engineer_ sir_eddie_kramer/

I was under the impression that -apart from under only extremely rare circumstances- it would not possible for a South African-born individual to use the title 'Sir' in the united Kingdom... -And South Africa did not recognize dual-nationality prior to 2004.

For comparison, Rudy Giuliani received an honorary knighthood from the queen, but -as a non-British subject from birth- is forbidden from going by the title 'Sir'.

-So I'm confused as to how Eddie is permitted to use the title. -It'can't be legitimate, surely?

I'm equally puzzled by Sir Mix-a-Lot's misuse of the title.

Keith,


next time I am having tea with her royal maj I will wait 'til she takes a sip and mention that I was listening to an album produced by SIR Eddie Kramer.

Her reaction will tell us what we need to know.

The collective noun...?

A flock of sheep, a herd of cattle, a coven of witches, a murder of crows, a parliament of owls, a pride of lions, a sword of mallards...

A fist of hams, perhaps!

(well, it fits in my case!!!)

'Laird of Beethrie' would be a fitting peerage, perhaps.

-Remember that flat you lent Eddie?

Fart -ooh, many times.

Who's flat? -you, Lance?

-I think he used to specify 1 minute each of 1kHz, 10kHz and 100Hz at the head of the tape, followed by a record pad of 1 minutes worth of silence (but-deadly).

Dear Keith,
          These guys and E.K. is typical of the type we come across daily.
I could also name another UK resident who also claims to be a top sound engineer & Technician as well as insisting he is a SIR, and who is of a similar nature to E.K.

I understand now in the UK you can purchase a “Sir”  if some poor person who deserved the title comes across bad times and then has to sell his title to the highest bidder.

I was informed that the guy in London who I have referred to,  paid

This line was used to great comic effect in a television advert in the early 1970's in England.

I think it was for a  brand of soap... -Cussons' "Imperial Leather", perhaps?

The scene was the couort of Czar Nicholas, and ends where Rasputin -in an agitated state- blurts out:

"..But the peasants are revolting!"

Upon hearing which the Czar turns, surveys the mad monk for the briefest moment, before replying:

"...and so are YOU, Rasputin ...(pause)... -So are you!"

-Twas ever a favourite.

-Thanks for reminding me!
