Sarah Harvey…..I didn’t see Alvin Stardust on the Pier because I wasn’t into pop but was dragged to see him by my daughter when he appeared during one of our stays at Butlins in Bognor…. I have to say that he was excellent and he rocked! Just shows how pre-conceptions can be misguided.

Alan Esdaile…..Remember this gig, as I did the disco. It was really packed and he was late coming on. For the first 5mins all you could see was a spotlight on his massive ring covering his leather glove.

Peter Fairless… Coo, coo….

Yvonne Cleland… He only did about three numbers, didn’t he?

Cindy Goodhand-Knight… I saw him at the Rat Trap in Maidstone when he was Shane Fenton and the Fentones !

Barry Arnold… I think I was at that one.

Jennie Tocock…. Alvin on the Pier, 1974, being interviewed by a certain young news reporter!!
