all photos supplied by Pete Prescott
Neil Cartwright… The 3rd photo Pete and my ear – ‘Six Bells’, Chiddingly. The other photo with John Laidlaw’s guitar stock – a bar in Eastbourne, I think. (Archery Tavern?)
John Laidlaw… I believe you’re right, Neil. 1988 or 89… I very stupidly sold that guitar.
Pete Prescott…..It was a gig we did for Keith Emerson’s sons 18th birthday. Keith Emerson ended up playing fanfare for the common man with us. Neil and I ended the night with him in the back room, he played flight of the bumble bee while I tap danced in the fireplace (&banged my head !) he was so funny and a great guy ! I sat next to him and sang summertime. Ill never forget it !
Andy Qunta… Great story, Pete! Good to hear what a nice guy Emerson is! Thanks for sharing!
