Mr Big – Hastings Pier 7th Feb 1976 & 28th May 1977

Sarah Harvey…..This may remind you who they were…its quite a nice song!

Alan Esdaile…..Good song, they supported Queen on one of the tours. Also another band called Mr Big in the 80’s but no connection.

Pete Fairless…..Yes, I have that single

John Storer…..My only recollection of this gig was that the band were far more “pop” than their debut album suggested and that free badges were handed out, each bearing a band member drawn in superhero comic style. I got the whole set! Woo! One of those gigs where I spent more time in the bar than watching the band.

Mick O’Dowd….I believe OZO failed to show. Anyone know who replaced them if any.

Jim Munday…I remember going to the 1977 gig. That was after their one and only hit.

Dave Nattress… Romeo – a truly beautiful single. It was an “our song” – excuse me and all that – girlfriend of the time – can I have the last almost 40 years back please. Got the 2 albums on Vinyl and then Japanese issue CD’s. The band could rock and some of the tracks kick A**.

Martin Waghorne… I remember that night on the pier.

Ralph Town… Am I right in thinking that SEPPUKU is ritual suicide in Japanese,or am I seeing something on the pic that isn’t there?

Julie Hedger… Yes ritual suicide

Shelley – 1960-1968

David Kirkwood… Hi, I met Andy Machecknie many years ago in Geraldton West Australia. He told us of his time in Shelley and their time in Norway. Is he back in England or still in WA? Would love to hear what he is up to.
