David Miller… Tommy does….
Roy Penfold… Plays by sense of smell! I remember there used to be a row of four or five on the pier amusements at one point.
Mick Knights… There were several in the games room at The Pam Dor, Eric banned me for playing one of them as my name wasn’t in the members book. Not bitter or anything!!!
Phil Little… Are there any left in Hastings now ? There used to be loads of them on the Pier.
Mick O’Dowd… Met my first wife in the games room of The Pam-Dor coffee bar. I was playing the pinball machine I thing was called “Buckaroo”.
Jim Breeds… TILT.
Alan Esdaile… Love them, remember playing the ones in The Pam Dor, Black Cat, the club at the top of the stairs above The Fiesta (can’t remember the name), The Pier, Olympia amusements George Street, come to mind.
Steve Cooke… I am a reformed pinball addict. Oh… TILT!
Paul Huggett… None in Hastings now (apart from three a mate of mine is restoring 👍) but if you’re ever in Minehead, Somerset, there’s a room full of them in an arcade near the WSR steam railway station….
Nigel Ford… There was one in the Kings Head, Battle, late 60’s- 70’s that got changed at least once over the years. A friend of mine sat on it and broke the glass – very expensive! Another in the Abbey Hotel too, I think.
Dave Nattress… There were many pin-ball machines for budding wizards in the amusements in Bexhill – the place is still there and open but I haven’t been in for years. Must look next time I’m down that way. This place and outside on the steps was a major hang-out in the late 60’s and early 70’s. Juke box always on and Fortes coffee bar across the road and the Cont a little further along.
Pete Prescott… Roger Carey and I play this song ! Love it !
Tim Anderson… He’s an actor and producer now.
Paul Huggett… Still do, when I can find one. There’s a large arcade in Minehead, Somerset, that has quite a few modern ones – very rare now. I have a PC game called Pinball Arcade which I love, features very accurate representations of old and new real life machines; I played the real thing at Minehead on holiday a couple of years ago and it was spot on! There’s an old one in the Piper in Norman Road, wasn’t on when I went in there recently. The song BTW, always thought it was good, and he’s not a bad actor either.
Jan Warren… Yeah, I love that song too!!
Paul Crimin… A songwriters song.
Richard J Porter… We know a chap in Australia that builds arcade style machines that contain every arcade game known to man since they began including electronic pin ball games.
Tim Moose Bruce… I remember the ones on Hastings pier in the 70s. Loud, with air horns.
Clive Garrard… I loved this song reminds me of sitting my o levels in 1974
Jane Hartley… I have that single!
Leigh Wieland-Boys… That’s bizarre…. I downloaded this Brian Protheroe track just the other week! Loved it then love it now!
Judie Struys… I loved the one in the Lido. I perfected the art of nudging it with my hip just enough to steer the ball without it tilting.
