Ian McGilvray… One of My first Bands
Geoff Peckham… Yes, I remember seeing you with them. Quite awestruck as a young lad, I was!
Dave Nattress… Geoff, I recall seeing Whisky Mac round and about Bexhill a few times probably the first few live gigs I ever attended. I remember Mac (Ian) from school – he would have been 2/3 years older than you and I? Probably back then Ian and you would have been just about the only rock musicians in the school? As you would recall though, there was a thriving school orchestra for a good while presided over by a somewhat formidable Miss Celia Elsworth. I’m pretty sure there was a dedicated music room that carried over from the girls school when the boys and girls were amalgamated in our 4th year.

Mick O’Dowd….Best known for “Whiter Shade of Pale”-like tune Reflections of Charles Brown. Have their CD which is pretty good to.
Wendy Wells… I remember this gig as an almost 16 year old. Had a crush on Steve from Santos Morados. If I remember rightly we exchanged addresses and wrote a couple of times, but never saw each other again. I’m sure I have the bands autographs somewhere and those of Rupert’s People. Happy Days.
Alan Esdaile… Can’t find much about Santos Morados but they did have a single on Island Records.

Terry Huggins…. Syd Barrett’s last ever gig with the band.
Lawrence Ralph… Does, anybody actually remember attending this, i know 50 years ago, and memories being foggy, was it good or bad from vaguest memories?
Dave Weeks… We still don’t know what happened to Beaufords Image! Anyone?
From 68 – Tich Turner, Tony Bird , Len Benton, Peter Horton and Ian McGilvray.

Paul Sleet – saw them at a gig at a girls school in Hastings. Think it was woodlands in tower road if memory serves. I was a mere schoolboy at the time.
