Alan Esdaile… Great find Phil.  Stringer Jones, was a duo with Martin Stringer and Malcolm Jones.

Martyn Baker… Malcolm Jones was the other half of Stringer-Jones with Martin Stringer in Hastings (1975-6). I kind of re-met Malcolm again when we both worked for Capital Radio in the 80’s. Martin now lives in the west of Ireland. Both top geezers.

Harry Randall… RIP Vic/Tony and Steve gone to young! Sadly missed I’m sure by all who new them!

Leigh Wieland-Boys… My that takes me back. Fond memories of Steve D, rest in peace dear friend.

Martin Stringer… Crikey.

Andre Martin…..Jerome Tait in action with Whisky Mac around 1967/68 – thanks to Graham Bradley who has been sending me some great pictures, that bring memories flooding back for all sorts of reasons.

Alan Esdaile…..This is Tich Turner.

Andre Martin…..I do not know why – but that was the name that Tich wanted to use on the publicity we put out in late 68 – part of the image no doubt – all of this is great stuff.

Phil Gill…..Jerome! I’d forgotten about that!

Martyn Baker… A very young Tich Turner

Tich Turner… I’ve only just seen this poster. Pretty sure it wasn’t 1985. I was still in The Ya Yas then. I believe the MM Band started in 1989 and we played last night. Another year!

Alan Esdaile… Thanks for correction Tich. Have updated from 1985 as that was a Tuesday. 22nd Oct 1989 would have been a Sunday.

Ernest Ballard… Still good whatever year Tich ha ha. Perhapes getting confused in his later years ah ha ha ha

Liane Carroll… Yep. 1989 I think. Rog and I weren’t together till 1987. I will ask him asap. Happy new year!! Xxxx

Pete Prescott… I was in Switzerland in 84/85 and 86.this was 89 or 90.I’ll check it out when I get home. Can’t remember much about this gig. It would have been fun with that line up I imagine.

Tich Turner’s Escalator – Diana

Phil Gill commented on this photo:

Ray took that picture in the top end of Alexandra Park. Tich commandeered my white jacket, so we went through Ray’s wardrobe and he found me that black leather one. It was really ’70s with a huge winged collar, which was tucked under out of sight. It also had “Marlon” written across the back of the shoulders in huge white letters. We referred to Ray as Marlon for weeks afterwards… 

Ken Wilson…  I remember going round Tich’s house and listening to the Stones first album…..who would have thought they would be playing Glastonbury tonight !!!!! Must have been 63/64 ish. Tich did the best Mick Jagger ever , great guy !!

Bobby Walker….Ray Fenwick now head of music at a college in Lincolnshire. Still plays regularly in local pubs

Allan Peterson… Hi,I remember Tich from the sixties at the Tuesday Night gigs at Langton Hall Battle. A Mick Jagger lookalike. Used to talk to him, a nice guy. Glad he has done well for himself. If only Diana was released later on?

Mick O’Dowd…. agree Tich was a Mick Jagger lookalike & that’s one reason we hired him to front Deep Purple.

Alan Wood… Interesting again,says Tich did well,how well

Andy Maby…. A superb song! Especially played live by the Escalators.. downstairs in the Chatsworth!!! :o))

Andy Qunta… I was just listening to this yesterday on my iPod! Fun times! What has Tich been up to? Haven’t seen or heard of him in a while!

Colin Fox… I remember Tich and his band supporting us at Langton Hall Battle in the early 60’s when he was a young lad just starting out and I could see they had potential. Very friendly and eager to learn.

Mick O’Dowd… I believe he is one of “The Blues Bros” in Soul Express show and also now in The Low-Fi Sneakers or something like that?

Alan Esdaile.. Not sure about The Soul Express Mick but he’s still got soul with the Hi Fi Sneakers.

Phil Gill… TTE, Lovely lads, but you wouldn’t want any of ’em marrying your sister.

Andy Qunta… Great to see Tich has still got it!

Yvonne Cleland… Brilliant!

Pete Prescott… I still have that record !

Virginia Davis… Remember seeing them often at the Chatsworth
