Mick O’Dowd… Looking for info/pics on the groups “The Likes of Us” and “Morning Dew”. Both at one time included Pete Horton (Deep Purple) in their line-up.
We have one photo on the website of ‘Morning Dew’ but anyone got any others?
Geoff Peckham…. used to have Blues jams with some guys older than myself around ’67,’68 in Bexhill. There were two excellent guitarists – one was Patrick Gaffney and I’m sure the other was Pete Horton. There was also an impressive singer/harpist called Robin Musket (?). They, and a guy called Teddy Barnes spoke fondly of a band they were involved with called “The Likes of Us”. I always thought it was a great name! That’s all I recall except I think it was short-lived and they played at the Sailing Club around ’63,’64. Does that jog any memories?
Mick O’Dowd….RE: Likes of Us. Now have lineup: Bob Laurie(Lead guitar), Pete Horton(Rhythm),Chris Burt (Bass), Ian “Mac” McGilvary (Drums) and
Ted Barnes (Vocals). The manager was Ian Rolls. Update on Morning Dew. They morphed from The Springbeats and if you look at the pics of both groups on web you can see likeness.
Anyone help with this?
This is on the letter page in today’s Hastings Observer.
CAN anyone help me with my 26-year search?
I used to live in Marina, St Leonards, and I sang with a country band called Ricochet. Hugh was the Scottish drummer and boss, Pete and Mick were on guitars and James Fender was the singer and harmonica player. We were a great band and I’d dearly love to get back in contact. I was then called Jody Lee. We played from 1997 to 1999. I think they were in their late 40s then.
Please get in touch.
