Peter Fairless… Made me smile!
Matt Thomas… I was working the bar that night
Andy Qunta… I did a tour with SH & CR in 1981. A really fun time! Great songs, great band! After that, we recorded a couple of songs, which Midge Ure produced. One of them, “I Can’t Even Touch You”, is the last track on the “Cream Of” album mentioned above. Just a bit of trivia for you!
Tony Davis… If I remember rightly Mr Cobby it was you and I that started the singing of Oh Dear Look What They’ve done to the blues. It was a good night. I think I also got hit by a small piece of falling ceiling.
Iain Cobby… Your memory serves you well, Mr Davis and if I’m correct, we were both in a video of his shot at Brighton Dome. More trivia, the bassist of his first Cockney Rebel band Paul Jeffery died on board flight Pan Am 103 with his bride on there honeymoon. Steve often would dedicate ” Sebastian” to him.
Tony Davis… Saw Cockney Rebel at the Leas Cliff in Folkestone. They were touring the album Best Years of Our Lives for it’s 40th. Anniversary. Steve Harley and the band were fantastic that night. Instead of a support act they incorporated it within the band. 2 sisters from Austria who were multi-instrumentalists and during Cockney Rebel’s set they played a couple of their own tunes. Really glad I went.
