Joe Knight….what happened to steve maxted ? use to go to catford DESMOND DEKOR!!! lots of great bands

Andre Martin….Joe – Steve Maxted still going strong well into the late 1970s. – Above is an advert from 1974. I have some later images waiting to be uploaded and indexed.

John Storer… Apropos of not much, my late Mum absolutely loved Edgar Broughton’s “Apache Dropout”. Remember seeing Barclay James Harvest and thought Hudson/Ford were actually much better than I was expecting

Mick Mepham….Hurrrraahhhhh! I hadn’t got this flier – have now yippeeeee!

Jim Breeds….Lindisfarne, BJH, Hudson/Ford. Wow, I missed some stuff I should have seen

Jenny Tyler… I loved Steve Maxted.

Phil Gill…  I was there for the New Year gig. The bouncers stopped the Stallion set at 11:45 and threw everyone out. They were really shitty about it too. Presumably they wanted to go drinking…

Mick Mepham… I remember introducing Hudson/Ford and making a total twat of myself doing so ….. blusho ……

Yvonne Cleland…. You were nowt but a lad, MM 🙂

Mick Knights… Edgar Broughton.. The question has always been, should he have allowed the demons in in the first place!!

Alan Esdaile… Not much hope for the Apaches as well, Mick.

 

 

Trapeze? and Image – The Cobweb 24th May 1969

24th May 1969 Trapze

Anyone confirm if this was Glenn Hughes Trapeze?

Robert Searle… Yes believe it was

Chris Sambrook… Trapeze were a  a 5 piece band in 1969, so it could have been Glenn Hughes. Then they were down to 3. You are the music, we’re just the band album not sure if this was the first album as a 3 piece. Glenn Hughes mentioned the Moody Blues another West Midlands band for their  help early on to  promote Trapeze,  with thanks to them, within the  presentation of Deep Purple inducted by Lars Ulric into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Robert Searle… “Send me no more letters” was their single on the Threshold label.
