Paul Dove….oh man look at narrow guts Dovey with long dark hair,!!! great band and Jed best drummer i ever played with, were are those 2 now..!!!
Andy Knight… Can you remember the year – when did you join us?
Robert Searle… Both venues now gone.
Jane Hartley… Went to the Queens Head a lot!
Dave Nattress… Yes, the Granville, Bexhill, downstairs in what I think I recall was like a quite ornate ball-room with circular pillars – maybe the mind is wandering too far on the decor – always, a considerable amount of beer had been downed. There was a period in 1969 – 1970 odd when there were lots of bands. Suspect or Centrepage I’m pretty sure and I think Bexhill’s Cult. But, for me and the lads on the whole it was a very bleary-eyed time.
Peter Millington… JINKS played there several times in the 70/80s. I remember the columns well.
Jan Warren… Yeah, went the Queens Head and the Granville back then, there was usually a band or disco, I remember most of the local bands that played the circuit during that time and as Dave (Nattress) said, The Granville Ballroom was rather “Grand”, probably why it was later named “The Grand Hotel”!! – sadly it was demolished after a fire about 15 years ago!
Barry French… Saw Candy Stripe play at the Regent & the Silverhill Tavern. Great band.
