Eric Cawthraw… I was thinking – we have photos of various bands as they were in there youth – but what about the rest of us! OK – we’re a sad old bunch of gits now, but it occurs to me that we ought o have a ‘rogues gallery’ for how we all looked in the days of our youth.
I thought I’d start the ball rolling with a couple of shots – these should scare the living daylights out of you, so snaps of others can only improve things. I’m in soft focus in the first one – probably just as well, the second photo is me on the left and Mick Hurton on the right. They’re a bit small – hope they are OK. It was taken in about 1970/71, so we would be about 20. They were taken on a day out in London, we’re up on one of the plinths with the lions in Trafalgar Square. Get that hair – very bouffant! Old hippies and proud of it! The third photo is photo of Malcolm Hutchison.
Alan Esdaile… Anyone else?
John Storer… Remember seeing those pics often, Eric … My sister sent me some pics of me and Colin Jarvis that they found after clearing out my Mum’s house … will dig them out and post them in next couple of days
Sarah Harvey… Well I haven’t changed a bit as everyone knows! 🙂
Eric Cawthraw… Some of you in SMART will know my old mate Simon Pont. Simon has mobility problems these days so it isn’t easy for him to come along to the monthly bash. He has asked me to add his photo to the Rogues Gallery and provided a suitable picture, thankfully he has got his clothes on. It looks like it is taken back in his biker days, I think Mick Mepham is just out of shot with his bicycle and stablisers!! [Nobody sing ‘The Push-Bike Song’ please].
Yvonne Cleland… Please tell Simon Yvonne says hello! Above photo was in about 1975.
Eric Cawthraw… Thanks Yvonne – I’ll pass your best on to Simon.
Eric Cawthraw… (group photo) I know that John Storer was going to put a picture of himself as he was in younger days on the ‘Rogues Gallery’. Unfortunately his sad demise meant that this didn’t happen. So here is a picture of him at the Reading Festival taken in ’77 [I think!]. From left to right: John ‘er-um’ Storer, Mick ‘Curtains’ Hurton, Mick ‘Spanner-hands’ Watson and Garry Peters aka ‘The Spadger’. Thanks to Kev Potter for providing the photo.
