Alan Esdaile….Another great find, Andre. Did you go to this gig? I’m sure I remember lots of people complaining in the following weeks Observer about fans walking over their plants and pissing in their gardens?

Andre Martin….Yes you are right – I think that Pilot Road Residents petitioned the council to try and get this stopped, or something to prevent any further similar activities, I not sure if I have that copy, but will try and find. I don’t think I was at this because I have no memories, stories to tell.

Mick Knights….Was also there, felt sorry for the people who came from london and had to find out the hard way how far it was from the station to the Pilot Field, only then to find out there was no bar and of course no idea where the nearest pub was, seem to remember the Beaconsfield had on of their best bank holidays!!! Arthur Brown really did steal the show, it was the first time I heard the story of the kind woman and the snake

John Wilde…. I was there, with flowers in my hair! it was a great day for us locals. I was one of those that added “a mystic flavour” to the event.
