Peter Millington… The Talismen – One of the best Hastings Groups between 1964 and 1967. Chris Sayer, Keith (Budge) Harrison, Henry Harvey and Peter (Jonah) Jones. Pictures from Lloyd Johnson. Sadly, Chris, Budge and Henry have all passed away.

Yvonne Cleland… I think this is the band that came round to our house and played a few numbers when I was a baby in a cot. Chris played something, and I plunked along with him on my red plastic guitar!

Jon McCallion… Had lunch with Chris nearly every day in the early 70s. Lovely man.

Ken Mulley… I remember this band very well … As I recall they played in Hastings caves.. One stage they were all wearing Levi 501s which insprired me to do the same..! this would had been 64/65

Leigh Wieland-Boys… The lovely Jonah, always looked after us girls when he was a bouncer – never saw his band though sadly

Stuart Moir… I see Pete at the Hastings sea angling club when it’s open was a brilliant solid drummer in the Talisman .

Lloyd Johnson… They played the Market Hall, The Regent, The Caves, The Pier everywhere. I thought they were the best group in Hastings at the time. always quick with the wit!…I was good mates with Henry and and I put The Big Beat Reunions on The pier in the 80s…

Anne… Is Pete still around? My other half played in Revival with Chris, and Chris and Pete used to play at the White Horse in Hurst
Green as a duo. Hard to believe it’s more than 10 years since Chris passed away.

Lloyd Johnson… I think Pete lives in Spain now….
