David Betts… Well here they are, the only 2 known pictures of The Spirits, playing at the De La Warr,196? Dave Gibbs on drums, Dave Neal bass, Colin Watford vocals, Johnny Orchard rhythm guitar and right at the back me on lead guitar.
Dave Gibb… Just great to see these pictures David. Pictures I had have been lost over the years. They were such terrific years. It would be great to see you and Johnny, Colin and Dave.
David Betts… I’m afraid Dave, Neal died some years ago, don’t know anything about Colin or Johnny. I’m living in Fife, Scotland, but do occasionally get down to Bexhill, would be good to meet up.
David Edwards… was Dave Neal a chippie?
Roger Lee… David, Dave Neal was a chippie. I knew him when he was in a band called Festivity Blues
David Edwards… Roger, went to college with him when we were apprentices
