Sarah Harvey…..I didn’t see Alvin Stardust on the Pier because I wasn’t into pop but was dragged to see him by my daughter when he appeared during one of our stays at Butlins in Bognor…. I have to say that he was excellent and he rocked! Just shows how pre-conceptions can be misguided.
Alan Esdaile…..Remember this gig, as I did the disco. It was really packed and he was late coming on. For the first 5mins all you could see was a spotlight on his massive ring covering his leather glove.
Peter Fairless… Coo, coo….
Yvonne Cleland… He only did about three numbers, didn’t he?
Cindy Goodhand-Knight… I saw him at the Rat Trap in Maidstone when he was Shane Fenton and the Fentones !
Barry Arnold… I think I was at that one.
Jennie Tocock…. Alvin on the Pier, 1974, being interviewed by a certain young news reporter!!
Jill Lawrence… I was there lol!!
David Medcalf… My wife was at the gig on Hastings Pier 19th April 1974, she still sings the songs HaHa
Jacky Mattelaer… I remember going to this!
Mick O’Dowd… Didn’t he appear at The Beer Festival on The Oval once as well?
Ian Price… I did a karaoke of my coo ca choo,but the way I wore my black glove, holding the microphone and moving ,went down better than me singing!
Pete Houghton… I was there and Alvin and the Band signed my poster for me afterwards
Gerry Fortsch… He always put on a good show.
Neil Curtis… Better as Shane Fenton , lol
