Peter Gladwish… Remembering King. 8 years since his passing. Still missing a good mate.

Alan Esdaile… This brings back some great memories of seeing King Rod.

Jon McCallion… Good memories of King Rod and Co at the 58 club then getting a lift back home in the blue bus that they had. Happy days.

Barry Newton… Jon, I remember that ride back to Hastings after 58 nights out I worked and drank there. Good times.

Mick O’Dowd… King Rod & Co always seemed to be the band that were always there lurking in the background but never forgotten once seen.

Carol Arnold… yes great nights at 58 club with pie and lift back in bus!

Marianne Hay… My late husband used to be the DJ at the 58club when it changed to Pebbles and knew all of the local groups including King Rod well as he played when the groups went for their break his name was Henry Hay I am sure that there are a lot of people out there who remember him.

Nigel Ford… The Friday Rock Show put out the brilliant set from Randy California (sadly missed RIP) which I taped but would love to find it on a clearer format,..from memory it included tracks:Downer, Killer weed, Second Son & Run to your lover (+ others) I’ve found a cd of other studio versions of some of these but they aren’t as powerfull as the Reading set, can anyone help, I don’t think the BBC ever released the set (?) … and that should be VOW WOW from Japan, surely!! Also, seeing TANK. (formed by Algie Ward when he left The Damned).. I’ve had a watch on ebay for years for their Cd that contains “Number the Brave” track without luck,,,anyone any clues where I’d find it? The track was on youtube a few years back but not now.
