Diane Knight… That takes me back !!!!
Phil Gill… This pic above was after one of the pre-studio rehearsal sessions for Charlie Hutchinson’s “Feels Like Rain” album. No recordings were done at The Box in Hastings, it was recorded in Poole during January 1980. L-R, it’s Allan Thorpe (producer), me, Steve D, Tony Q, Charlie H and Ashley P. Here’s a pic (below) Chris took during the rehearsals which illustrates the seductive and glamorous inside world of rock & roll….
Pete Fisher… Great photo Phil! Especially the shadows behind you! Luxurious rehearsal space too…not!
Phi Gill… Have to say that if I’d had any inkling in 1980 we’d now have the internet, I’d probably have tried to avoid standing next to graffiti of a giant flying penis insect when the camera was about.
Nick Webb… blimey that takes me back too , Charlie and I where good friends often stayed at his place in Cornwallis Terrace .
