Barden Taylor Big Band

John Gale… Dad decided one night to help us (a punk combo in 1977) rehearse as we didnt have a drummer, after he played a version of the Damned’s New Rose he immediately siezed up 🤣🤣🤣. He then decided to gracefully revert to his favourite music, to his dying day, Big Band Swing playing in Ore with the Barden Taylor Big Band, probably at his happiest, he was never going to be his hero Buddy Rich. But Dad, if you’re up there reading this, you put up a good shot at it and you were alot better than you ever thought you were

Mike Mitchell… Is that Brett Taylor’s dad on the left in the second pic?

John Gale… yes m8
