Sarah Harvey… (first) November 15th, 1969….. would this be one Rock Museum’s final gigs before splitting up? As for 14 Days…..enlighten me! I was just too young to see this gig.

Sarah Harvey… (second) Well if Rock Museum split at the end of 1969, New Years Eve 1969 surely must have been their final gig supporting Shady Haze? No idea……however, there they are again….14 Days (Fourteen Days). Amalgamation seem to have lasted the course to more recently with the founder member being the only remaining of the original line-up…..Frank (surname unknown). Apparently heralded from West Sussex.

Sarah Harvey… (third) The lead-up to Christmas 1969 on the Pier ….. the Amalgamation gig advertised for later on in the month and Rock Museum supporting The Earthquake just before Christmas …..and there they are again on Christmas Eve….Fourteen Days supporting St.Johns Wood.

Robert Searle… Rock Museum Laurie Cooksey first group?

Alan Esdaile… Yes Robert, Laurie was in Rock Museum. Left to right: Tony Carr(lead vocals), Terry Corder(bass guitar/vocals), Dave Gurr(lead guitar/vocals), Laurie Cooksey(drums/vocals).

Geoff Peckham… Not Laurie’s first group though. There were at least two before Rock Museum: Prohibition and Rael.
