Gerry & The Pacemakers – Hastings Pier 1993. Not sure of correct date but fund raising gig for RNLI. Support for Gerry & The Pacemakers were The Humperdinks showing John Kingdon & Kenny Comfort. Also on the bill the second support act featured Paul Burton and Chris Sayer RIP and guest singer? Anyone know who and the name of the band?

Andre Martin……Great Act to work with, he was so not ” I am Big Star – look at me ” just a great Liverpudlian Guy, a real pleasure to be with him.

Karen Sweatman was Blackman…..Saw them at the De La Warr around the same time. Centre Page were supporting.

Madeline Joyce Morton…..Was it Spyke

Peter Millington…..No it wasn’t Spyke Madeline Joyce Morton I played in Spyke for as long as they lasted. Both Chris and Paul were in Spyke although Paul left the trio in 1968. Chris and I continued on for a couple of years and were then joined first by Terry Chedzoy (Drums/Vocals) and then Ian Williams (Guitar/Vocals). That was the hey-day and included a 3 times a week residency at the Alexandra Hotel. Chris Sayer left Spyke in 1973 and the group continued on until 1974 when Rod Trowell joined (from King Rod and Co). They then changed their name to JINKS and we are still playing today although there have been a couple of arrivals/departures.

Madeline Joyce Morton……Those were the days at the Alexandra . Yes Jinks I knew there was another name and it just would not come to me. Must be old age.

Colin Fox……In the first photo, is that Juan Sheet on the right?

John Kingdon….No Trevour Notton a Maidstone based singer.

Alan Esdaile…..When they came up with the name of the band Pacemakers, it meant something completely different to what we think of now.
