Laurie Cooksey… Rock Museum Autumn 1969, posing alongside someone else’s mini in Parkstone Road, Hastings. Left to right: Tony Carr(lead vocals), Terry Corder(bass guitar/vocals), Dave Gurr(lead guitar/vocals), Laurie Cooksey(drums/vocals). Rock Museum had formed in early 1969 as a 3 piece heavy rock group, Tony Carr joining on lead vocals in the summer of 1969. The group split up at the end of 1969.
Janine Anne Hemsley… This is great.
Andy Qunta… Saw Rock Museum rehearsing in a Church hall in late ’69, shortly after moving to the Hastings area. Very impressed, especially with Laurie Cooksey! Remember thinking it would be great to play with him in a band one day!
Geoff Peckham… You never know, Andy. It may still happen!
Sarah Harvey… These photos are absolute gems
Colin Fox… I have to say that I have never heard of this band, but they certainly look the part. Great photo.
Mick O’Dowd… It’s amazing how many bands are coming out of the woodwork now thanks to Lol. Can’t say I remember these either so it is great to see them and just goes to show how lucky we were/are in Hastings to have such a rich musicak heritage.
Mark Asseenontv Scutchings-Stevens… I remember Dave Gurr in 1976 when he was living in Crawley ! He was riding a Honda CB500T . What’s become of him now ?
Ian McGilvray… Is Laurie still playing? I saw him behind His kit on many occasions in Bexhill.
Alan Esdaile… He’s still playing Ian, with the 6T’s (next gig The Comet 30th Aug 2014) and with a reformed Factory.
Janine Anne Hemsley… Terry Corder too .
