Mick O’Dowd…….Brilliant band! Anybody got any pics/info on The Famous Rondini Brothers. They were so famous I can’t remember them!
Peter Pursglove……Did security for Osibisa at the De la warr ,excellent night but a sitting down concert just did’nt seem to work for me. We also did a gig for Paul Casson and Joe Devito up in Sussex or Kent with Curved Air they were really good.
Alan Esdaile…..That was Chatham Town Hall, Peter and you probably also did Baker Gurvitz Army at the same venue?
Peter Pursglove……One of the bands was either German or Dutch and they were good too.
Alan Esdaile….The dutch band your thinking of Pete, might have been Thijs van Leer, the guy that was in the band Focus? I remember seeing someone playing a hammond organ literally throwing it around the stage as he played it and panic set in a couple of times when it looked like it was going to roll into the audience.
Julie Morris… Even mentions Supertramp – one of my favourite shops. Talk about blast from the past! Think it was in Robertson Street.
Alan Esdaile… Well remember Julie. Yes it was in Robertson Street, a few doors along from what was Hall’s the shoe shop
David Ramsey… I remember playing for The Famous Rondini Brothers at The Marquee, I was asked to stand in last minute as they had misplaced their drummer !!!!!!! We supported some fusion rock outfit from Italy that was the band The Musical Express was raving about at that time, was a great evening and rounded off with being introduced to John Coghlan the original drummer with Status Quo by Jackie Lynton. Sit down gig that night, but the Rons went down so well with the audience that everybody was on their feet giving it large. Fond memory xxx
