Snoop Dogg has returned to Glasgow today ahead of his gig at the Hydro tonight, March 16, and he was greeted by a bagpipe player and a rendition of ‘Still D.R.E’ when he landed at the airport.
Ross Ainslie, a professional piper, was there to welcome Snoop Dogg when he arrived on the runway today. He gave a rendition of Still D.R.E while Snoop can be seen stepping and grooving to the drone of the pipes before getting into his car to be taken to the Hydro ahead of tonight’s gig.
Ross Ainslie is a popular piper, who was given the opportunity to greet Snoop as he landed. Ainslie just played at Celtic Connections this year, has featured on the setlist of a range of trad-festivals, and just last year released an album ‘Live at the Gorbals’ - you can get a better idea of the piper by following him on Instagram.
