Gunhill – Eleanor Rigby 1995

Mike Raxworthy… Just found an old clip from 1995 of the original Gunhill line up, with John Lawton, Ricky Robbins, Lloyd Coates, Neil Kavanaugh and of course myself. Was a privilege being in this band for almost 4 years with these guys, especially a vocalist like John – probably the most underrated British rock vocalist ever! Please excuse the sound and video quality. This track was our version of Eleanor Rigby.

Gunhill and Mick Box from Uriah Heep – Yelton Hotel 1996

Karen Sweatman….These were taken in 1996 at the Yelton. Gun Hill were joined by Mick Box from Uriah Heep. John Lawton (vocalist) used to sing with Uriah Heep, hence the Heep connection.

Alan Esdaile….very ‘eavy very ‘umble

Mick Mepham…..IN THE YELTON!!!!!!!!

Andy Qunta…..Wow! I’m a big fan of Uriah Heep, & also great memories of the Yelton, so this is fantastic! I don’t know Gun Hill but I probably should!

Mike Raxworthy……Hey Karen – had never seen these pics. Mick Box came down 3 or 4 times and gigged with us in Hastings and at the Six Bells in Chidingley. I think the Yelton got their moneys worth that night!

Rik Goodman…..Ah…. those were the days!
