Mick Mepham… (photo 1) Hurrah! Note: The girl’s eyes front left!!!  (photo 4)  Takes me back to when Rumours was a really good gig. Packed out, hot, dark, sweaty and that was just Steve’s underwear …..This is how we use to get into the dressing room, hence the expression “the place was a dive”…… — With Steve Farris, Andy Animal, Momo Sex, Mick Mepham…. ”Not at all staged …..”

Vicky Jones… I used to work at Rumours and have just dug out a poster we cobbled together of the band, with me behind the bar! my ex-hubby Nick Jones was arranging the bands for Rumours at the time..

Jamie Farris… This is very cool to see
