Steve Demetri, Stallion, – Hastings Pier & Car

Andy Qunta….Well, the one on the left & the two on the right, have demonstrated to me more than enough skill to warrant the term “musician”, but I can’t speak for, or even recognize, the others. Now, where are my glasses?

Phil Gill…..That’s Willie Lau, Steve’s resident kung fu expert and house guest for the summer. He filmed the Reading Festival gig that’s up on Youtube. Nice guy, funny and a great night person, good to be around. He’s next to his girlfriend Debbie. Steve’s wearing my hat, more normally sported by John Petri, a hat which is by coincidence, three feet away from me now. Still has the beer can ring-pull chain around the brim. Lucky it didn’t blow off into the sea.
