Deep Purple (the local one!) 18 plus group St Clements Caves 1967

Deep Purple Letter copy

letter supplied by Mick O’Dowd

Tony Davis… We ought to see if we could put something on at the caves now. Of course its so far from the road we’d need hundreds of roadies.

Terry Corder… When Die Laughing played the caves, Lol & I carried all the gear in on our own. We worked out that we each walked 3 1/2 miles each. Don’t want to do that again!

Terry Hardwick… You get the gig I will put the gear in.

Tony Davis… As it’s the caves we ought to make it a rock night (sorry bad gag) so I could organise Hastings Rock Djs

Mick O’Dowd… Good venue but with access problems! At least no neighbours complaining about the noise!
