who remembers organist Tina Johnson 1974

John Gale… Omg. Alan. !!!! That’s Tina that dad played with. Since he died we’ve all been trying to remember her surname. Brilliant She’s was a good keyboard player I think I have a photo with dad somewhere from the Railway club Thank you

Tony Davis… Tina and her Paradise Islanders. She tried to teach me to play guitar but my heart wasn’t in it. Wish I’d persevered

Andy James Long… you should definitely have persevered, it’s never too late to Tony!

Pauline Richards… She played at my parents 25th anniversary with John Gales dad on drums. I think she lived on Parker Road

John Gale… Hi Pauline, I don’t surpose you have any photos of the anniversary do you?? My mum and myself are always trying to find a photo of Tina playing with dad as we only have one 😪. I use to go along and watch them quite alot myself, back in the day. I thought my Dad was the world’s greatest drummer 😂😂as you do, when you’re 10 years old

Shiela Maile… Yes in the Chatsworth

Janine Hemsley… She taught me guitar

John Gale… We are  after a photo of my dad with her as we haven’t hardly any… 😥. Mum just mentioned, Tina’s first husband was also called Tony and was a drummer… She later went on to marry Ken Baker. Just a bit of useless info there..

John Gale… dad on his drums,, he had a residency with a lady called Tina (on keyboards) 1975-79. Railway Club near Warrior Station most Saturday and Sundays,,,, God they were busy nights,,, not sure if it was because the band was good or the drink was cheap,,, 🤣🤣. Think I know the answer

Chris Boorman… I know I’ve said this before, but Tony was my greatest drumming inspiration when I was growing up. Fantastic drummer and such a nice bloke.

Mike Mitchell… This is a nice set of photos. I particularly like the one of your dad using on some “music oil” aka Best Bitter.

Ken Copsey… Great set of pictures John. I notice that Tina is playing her keyboard through a very nice and extremely desirable Ampeg amplifier as used by the Stones in the 1970’s. Also very loud. Was this so that she could be heard over the drums! Only thought of this as it appears that your dad was a big influence on a certain Mr Boorman? Just saying.

Mick Bacon… Great photos

Mark Mackenzie… Fab pics, thank you.

Peter Millington… Knew Tony well at FJ Parsons. Regularly chatted with him at the EHSAA on a Saturday night. Nice bloke

Pete Millington… Those were the days, Observer Office party Christmas 1964. Dave Johnson (lead foot) on drums
