The Golden Egg, York Buildings, Hastings 1974

Andy Clarke… My brother and I were always in there. Loved the place.

Christine Pachner… The Golden Egg in Haymarket London 1970 – sausages on French bread 🥖. Worked in NatWest next door and always had a 20min break mid morning

Helen Downton… Used to love being taken to The Golden Egg for a treat!

Wendy Weaver… An old friend’s teeth flew out and across the floor in the Golden Egg. They ended up under a foreign couple’s table who looked horrified until they realised we were in hysterics and joined in the laughter.

Graham Sherrington… woow dont remember this place!!!

Allan Mitchell… I remember those days

Chris Meachen… Enjoyed many milk shakes in there…

Jo Turner… Elizabeth Turner and I worked there yes 😊 In 1974 exactly

Sarah Harvey…..After The Fire – March 3rd 1979 – I loved this band and bought the album ‘Laser Love’ after hearing ‘One Rule For You’ .

Tony May……I actually joined their fan club! Loved the first album and 80F but they started to decline a bit after that. Did you know that I A J Twiddle also released an album? Don’t know what it was like but I remember seeing it once. I’m a bit of a ‘Wild West Hero’ now myself!

Dave Nattress…..”One Rule For You”, truly fabulous. I bought the albums 80F and Laser Love – 1979/1980 and also a 3 CD set, “The CBS Recordings”. “One Rule” is definitely a wonderful track, much of the rest a bit dissappointing.

 

Frank Carson – Hastings Sunday market 3rd March 1985

Eric Harmer… Funny man

Phil Gill… It’s the way he tells ‘em.

Eric Harmer… he made me laugh with one. “What’s the difference between my wife and a terrorist. You can negotiate with a terrorist”

Keith Roxborough… If you think so

Chris Howard… Might have been funny but was not very pleasant. I did a gig with him once his attitude was dreadful

Gerald Jeffery… It’s a Cracker ! It’s The Way I Tell Em !

Conan Howard… it was the way he told EM

Birds Music Bexhill special offers 1977

Martin Richter… gotta love some *overload* and *heavy duty* …?

Tim Moose Bruce… Is that when Tony’s dad was running it? He used to build organs, which must have been valve circuitry.

Alan Vale… I had several 100’s of £££ in cash and he refused to sell me an orange hustler, he later sold to a very good friend of mine for £50 years later. So I refuse to deal with him. What sort of bussiness is that???

Gerry Fortsch… Always got a good deal from Tony.

David Blundell… I used to go in to buy a plectrum and I’d come out with an effects pedal I never knew I needed!

Gez Donnelly…. I went in for a pick and come out with a pick and a set of drumsticks

Chris Jolly… That ole chestnut!

David Blundell… All true Chris – I was a gullible teenager and easy prey for master salesman Tony Bird!

Mike Waghorne… I brought a fender twin reverb of off Tony in the mid to late 70’s part exchanged for a HH 100w with a 2/12 cab

Pete Fisher…Marshall with overload sounds great… that logo looks like a job for your 335 Phil Gill.

Ralph Town… At those prices,I,m in…who do I call…OH! I see…..

Conan Howard… I would like 5 of those Marshall amps please.. right now
