Thanks to Jim Breeds for finding this.
Barry French… A mixture of nostalgia & sadness at seeing those images of the Pier Ballroom. Spent many a night there in the early 70’s listening to great local bands & big name acts. I also had the pleasure of playing a few gigs there. (You don’t know what you had till it’s gone)
Harry Randall… Barry my sentiments entirely!
Pete Prescott… A lot of memories ! Sad.
Tony Court-holmes… same as many happy nights there
Dave Nattress… Incredible video!! Like Barry, saw many bands there, appeared with Damaris a few times. Backstage and dressing rooms were a bit rough, toilets dodgy and I recall a shower but definitely out of bounds. Post gig shower no way! Best suffer it get home and shower or maybe jump in the sea!!
Yvonne Cleland… Great to see the ballroom (and quick view of bar entrance) and remember all the bands I’ve seen there, but towards the end those dark pine little shops made it so claustrophobic. My kids liked the soft play pirate area though. Hey ho. Our youth! xxx
