Sarah Harvey… January 13th, 1968. I still have the single Xanandu!
John Mcewen… So have I! On a blue Fontana label!
Andre Martin… This was the start of the promotions by John Schofield [ lover of Hattie Jacques] Strand Entertainments – great guy to work for.
John Storer… I actually preferred the band’s post-Dave Dee work, (when they were billed as DBM&T) especially the excellent “Mr President”, a very minor hit in 1970 – very influenced by the first Crosby, Stills & Nash album – the band even looked as if they were from the West Coast
Nigel Ford… me too & Zabadak, others maybe too somewhere?
Mick Knights… Saw them at the Witch Doctor as well!!!!
Sarah Harvey… Dave Dee started out life as a Policeman before forming DDDBMT in 1961 and became a JP in his latter years before dying of Postate Cancer during 2009.
Andy Qunta… I believe Dave Dee was also an A & R man for a record co. for a while. I seem to recall he came to check out Factory at a gig in Brighton at some point. What a great name for a band, btw! Made some good records too!
Eddie King… I read that Dozy (Trevor Ward-Davies) passed away.
John Storer… DD,D,B,M&T was actually “Dozy”‘s band
Alan Esdaile… Yes Eddie. Here is the report…

Pete Fisher… Dave Dee was head of A&R at WEA in the 70s, and apparently signed AC/DC, Boney M and Gary Numan!
Mick O’Dowd… Zabadak!
Mike Curtis… I was there. Dave Dee walked through the pier to the theatre in a colorful afghan coat as far as I remember.
Chris Baker… Ha! Pete (Bill) Wiltshire, used to announce any song by them as “Dave Dee’s Dopey, Sleazy, Dirty Bitch!” As long as children weren’t around! Fun times
