Andy Gunton… A bit more about The Who gig

Jenny Tyler… John Entwistle kissed my cheek. I Still love the Who.

Chris Sambrook…As the moon landings are coming up The Who played the Sunday Club on the very eve. I went as I was 14 at the time, The Who played most of Tommy check out Live At Leeds. There is an cd just been released called Old England New England which could be the same set The Who played in America. I’ve got the cd but haven’t played it yet. After the gig I walked back to St.Leonards in a daze. My dad had the tv on waiting for the moon landing.

Keith Matthews… I was there too. Brilliant gig. Getting a burger at a little place over the road afterwards and a black limo pulled up. John Entwistle climbed out of the back and ordered burgers for himself and Moony who was also in the car. We had a chat and a laugh with them for a few minutes, complimenting them on the gig. Unfortunately don’t have a record of it as it wasn’t cool for an 18 year old guy to ask for autographs! Wish I had had a camera on me.

Played Hastings Pier 10th February 1968 – cuttings supplied by Wendy Wells

Del Paramor… Main photo shows (l. to r.) Keith Burberry, Del Paramor, Pete Mole, Martin Grice in centre: Paul Brett who had left and been replaced by Tony Ollard (guitar) . Front: Paul Petts, Max Spinks (Warren Davis) left next day for months tour of Turin and Munich. We were going to make a Monkees type tv series but that never came to fruition.  We did a lot more demos after “Love is a Hurtin’ Thing”, but none were ever released.  I am still in contact with Martin Grice and Max Spinks (Warren Davis). Lost 2 of band, merged with “Still Life” and broke up around May, 1968. “Still Life” consisted of Jim Toomey (dms), Stuart Cowell (gtr) Tom Tierney or Con Byrne (B.gtr) and a very good organist whose name I forget.  Roger (baritone) and I were sacked in May, 1968 and the band staggered on for a few months more before Warren himself left, i gather.

Nick Warburton… Del Paramor went on to Sonority I believe.

Del Paramor… I’m very sorry to inform you of the very sad news, that our drummer Pete Mole, died a couple of days ago. We and our wives had met up again in Kent in July after a gap of many years.


Alan Esdaile… Very sorry to hear your news Del. Our thoughts are with Pete Moles family and friends at this sad time.


Mungo Jerry – Aquarius 10th February 1973.

Geoff Peckham… I believe this was the night that my Factory’s Sound City amp was stolen at the end of the evening. I stupidly left it unattended on the pavement whilst loading the van. Anyone seen it?

Phil Gill… I’m sure I saw Tony Qunta using an old Sound City head recently….

Leigh Wieland-Boys… Was there that night too (to see Mungo Jerry, not steal an amp I hasten to add

Phil Gill… Graham How, wasn’t this the gig that you, me and Burke Shelley from Budgie ended up at Rock a Nore in your Reliant Robin?

Geoff Peckham… If so, where did you find the room for my amp, eh?

Phil Gill… We made two trips.

Jim Breeds… I was at the Mungo Jerry gig.

Andre Martin…  And on Friday Night – Sabotage.


Andre Palfrey-martin collection

Alan Esdaile… Remember working with Sabotage a few times. They were a great pop harmony band.

Dave Nattress… Very witty Mr Gill. Like it!! Knowing Budgie well and having seen them and got albums and CD’s – amazed they should play the Aquarius! Dance to Budgie?
