Jenny Tyler… He was such a good musician & singer.

Mick O’Dowd… He also was a nice guy as was his brother.

Bob Posner… 1984 I had the pub from 1979 to the end of 84 then I took it on again for another Five years from 1987. (Glutton for punishment) then I had the Old King John for a number of years.. Pub pic, left to right… Me, Nigel Davies, Clive Davies, Kirk Ronchetti. As a matter of interest and memories as you can tell from the pumps in the pic. (The hand pumps were in the top bar) it was still a Whitbreads pub (before the mergers and monopolies commission).

Yvonne Cleland….It’s The Rokes.

Mick O’Dowd…..f you are on FB you can’t miss The Rokes & Rokes Fan Club but most of it is in Italian!

Antonio Piras Scanu….Sei troppo forte…appena posso verrò a vederti cantare!! which translates as….You’re too strong … I will come to see you as soon as I can sing!

Eric Cawthraw…..it must have been about 6 years back that Bob Posner told me he was hoping to go back to Italy and would like to get the old band back. As many of you know, he had a big hit out there in 60s/70s.
