Karen Draper… Does anyone know if The Rolling Stones ever played at The Hayloft at Fairlight Cove Hotel? There have been rumours but we (Fairlight History Group) have found no evidence to confirm this. Any help would be appreciated.
Peter Fairless… Seems unlikely, they did play St Clements caves, though. Any suggestions as to the date?
Alan Esdaile… I think if they did, then I’m sure it would have be documented or mentioned before. Mind you if they did play the caves then its always possible they did stop of their???
Eric Harmer… No
Bookham Ally… Wasn’t there a Hastings/Kent/Sussex band also called The Rolling Stones who dropped the name when Brian, Mick and Keef started.
Mick Thwaites… No, The Stones didn’t play at The Hayloft and sorry to say they also didn’t play The Caves. They were booked for it but as they had become a bit more famous, they wanted more money, and Brian became ill so they never played.
Pete Fairless… Err… no! They played at the caves, it’s in Keith’s book…
