Leigh Wieland-Boys….I was Secretary of the Students Union at Hastings College at the time & assisted in organising the event – can’t believe it was 44 years ago! It was a great evening 😊
Mick Mepham….Alan, who is AS?
Phil Gill….Andy Strickland probably.
Chris Meachen…..Definitely Andy Strickland, god rest ‘im.. Somewhere in my attic I have a vinegar Joe poster with Elkie’s autograph written on her thigh.. She was a hot chick …..
Tony Qunta….That was a great gig! Both bands were fantastic. I am pretty sure Jim Mullen was playing 2nd guitar with Vinegar Joe!
Paul Sleet…..I remember this one. went backstage afterwards and met Elkie Brooks, courtesy of Chris Meachen who was doing his usual roadying.
Paul Edmonds… Missed this one, great days! Hi Phil and Chris.
Peter Thomson… Superb gig. Forgot I’d actually seen Gary Moore!
Yvonne Cleland… I was at the front for Gary Moore! x
Andy Qunta… I saw both these bands on the Pier, so I was probably at this gig!
Simon Walsh… Yes I was there too!
Gavin Martin… MMMmmm Smells good? The pier, the students , vinegar Joe??
Jennie Tocock… I remember this one! Elkie Brooks was fabulous!
Mick O’Dowd… Used to love Vinegar Joe.
Peter Houghton… I remember seeing Vinegar Joe on the Pier, as i was at Hastings College then.
John Wilde… I was there also Pete.
Tony Court-holmes… so was I
Alan King… something about Robert Palmer used to make my skin crawl, can’t understand how Little Feat got involved with him
Yvonne Cleland… I was there. Front row for Gary Moore! x
Nick Silk… Pretty sure this is one of Graham Hows tickets/posters ( later of ACE PROMOTIONS) . I was SU president at some point around here and we used to sell tickets at the college in return for free entry… Graham H & Andy Strickland ‘s band “Pete Plastic and the chuck ups” used to practice at my parents house in Filsham Road. I recall organising a Melody Maker version of X Factor for bands – Elkie Brooks was one of the judges. I think Hastings band Stallion won the heat!
Chris Meachen… Poster was definitely done by Andy Strickland, as I was sitting with him while he was drawing it up.. Should still have an autographed copy of it somewhere
Andy Davies… What a memorable night Robert Palmer and Elkie Brooks (when she was good!!!) onlead vocals, brilliant…
Eric Harmer… Loved vinegar joe. With Elkies vocals
John McCormack… Would loved to have seen Gary Moore
