Paul Simon in Bexhill in 1964/1965 – information wanted.

Andy Gunton… Stu Huggett is writing a feature for The Stinger magazine all about Paul Simon and the gigs he played at the New Inn, Sidley and the De La Warr, Bexhill in the mid 1960’s (64/65).

if anyone has any info about those gigs, especially if you were actually at either of them, we’d love to hear from you. Any photo’s, cuttings etc would also be great to see.

The Drifters – The Catacombe Eastbourne 1966










Andre Palfrey-Martin Collection

Andre Martin…..Just look at those prices – and I could have claimed Student Rate at the time, that would have been an even bigger bonus. I seem to recall that you could get a very late[early]train back from Eastbourne at about 1.30 am that was always very useful.

Len Smith… Catacombe great place to play but how did they manage all 3 bands& Drifters in one night on that stage!

Andy Gunton interview with Phil Gill for Hastings Rock 2015. Lots of Stallion and SMART meeting chat.
