RITZ, with John Laidlaw, Neil Cartwright, Martin Stringer,  Andy Knight(Drums) &  Paul Dengate.

John Laidlaw….Eeek!

Paul Dengate… Just thinking, Neil and Andy and I played with two bands that weekend – Chaser and Ritz. Then realised that Garry Blakeley probably played with nearly everyone on the Saturday!

John Beeching… I don’t think he left the stage all day, should have been sponsored for the marathon.

Gilly Johnson… What a great festival it was!

Pete Prescott…  I went that year. Fantastic much missed festival. The Dharmas were brilliant that year. I lost money on that band.i bet a friend that they were going to be huge. One of Hastings best bands. Good times.

Andy Gunton.. I was there too. They should have been huge Pete. They just needed a bit of luck, which they didn’t get.

Pete Prescott… Not much of that about ha ha! Russell has done ok. I follow his adventures !

John Wilde… Watch the trailer for “Rudderless” The movie on Youtube. All songs by Simon Steadman.
