The Woodrat came out of hibernation for the MGF....he was pleased to put faces to the names meeting Wayne, Hank, Stu, Jeremy, Allen and David Aumann. A weekend amongst guitars and good company.... Woodrat was last seen leaving Melbourne carrying a piece of antique furniture through airport security....
