Joe Knight… Use to go on stage with Steve Maxted, back in 68 at Catford London crazy but a great bloke.
Alan Esdaile… Just notice Titanic are a forthcoming attraction. A long forgotten track that I remember playing to death in Bonitas was the hit ‘Sultana’.
Tony Davis… I was listening to the Titanic track the other day and remember that I gave that a bit of a thrashing too at both the Astral and the Crypt.
Alan Oliver… I think I saw them at the White Rock about 1988
Ronald Burgoyne… They were the first group I saw they opened first night at the Witchdoctor
Mick Knight… Me to!
Mike Wright… Saw them back Carl Perkins and Chuck Berry at Hammersmith Odeon in about 1964….what a show
Paul Huggett… Portsmouth Guildhall, about 1965 with my late mate Pete Thurlow who lived down there.
Phillip Earle… Seen Jimmy live on several occasions. Absolute master of showmanship. Voice still as good as when I first saw him in the seventies.
Andre Martin… Great showman to work with had some great gigs over the years, first time I recall was at the Shoreline Club in Bognor Regis many years ago !!
Mick O’Dowd… One of the undiscovered greats. Saw him at Butlins a few years back with Edwin Starr. Magic! Never recognised fully for the talent he has. Check out the album Live At The Marquee with him on one side and the other The Alan Bown Set. Another great band.
Nigel Ford… RARE BIRD did a track called Hammerhead – I wonder if there were band members in this band? Krishna Kudu (from Maidstone)used to cover the track in their set at Battle dances.
Alan Esdaile… Can’t find out much about them Nigel. Their was a rock band called Hammerhead but looks like that was the later part of the seventies so probably not the same band. As its listed as Radio 1 group, I would have thought they would have had a record release but so far draw a blank. Anyone?
Mick O’Dowd… Good little band. Saw them several times including this one.
Tony Davis… I was the house DJ at the Aquarius on this gig. I remember that the band went on first without Errol who was standing in the wings talking to me. We both noticed that he had missed his cue but he wasn’t bothered commenting they would get back to it in a minute. Nice guy and a good night.
Barry French… Does anyone else recall seeing Hot Chocolate on the Pier in the 70’s or did I dream it?
Alan Esdaile… Yes Barry, July 1975, great night remember it well as I did the disco.
Mick O’Dowd… Osibisa were one of the most exciting concerts i’ve worked on. They were absolutely electric. Trouble was they couldn’t transfer this exictement to disc. Great band though.
