John Austin… Anyone Remember Man Friday ? aka Paul Austin, Roger Carey, Dennis Wootton, Think John Wilde was the drummer, use to play The New Broom, back in the day

Chris Baker…..Dennis Wootton! Now there’s a blast from the past!

Yvonne Cleland…..Will plays with him from time to time. He’s still about!

John Wilde… Not me folks.

Paul Austin… Dennis and me played guitar, John Wilde (not the one above) played drums and later on, Roger joined us playing bass guitar.

Peter Thomson… The New Broom, back in the day(!) was my local, and Graham Barrett’s. Don’t ever remember seeing a band in there but then we used to avoid it if we could…

Pete Millington… Roger Carey I remember  “lusting” after that Gretsch Bass when I first saw it at St Helen’s Hospital Social Club – must have been about 1975/6.

Martin Richter… are they xmas jumpers or am I having a flashback ?

Barry French… Saw Man Friday several times, great band. Since Man Friday Paul went on to play in an early Slam lineup. Dennis has continued to play in many bands on a variety of instruments (Drums,Bass,Saxophone & Guitar). Den & I often bump into Paul & talk about the old days.
