Chris Howard… Stuart we had great times with Rev and Mick Brooker in Index and then Centre Page. Rev also played with Mick and I in Elite with Colin Fox, Kevin Hoad and Kate. Rev will always be missed by everyone.

Eric Burgess… Rev joined Looking Back and provided a great rhythm and backing vocals. We all enjoyed his time with us! Always missed!

Anyone buy a Guitar or Record Player in Woolworth in the 70’s?


Chris Meachen… I’m pretty sure that Roger Carey had an audition stereo when we were at school.

Rick Pentecost… I had an audition stereo. It was white, lasted for years. Sounded dreadful!

Peter Thomson… My Saturday job was at Woolies. When the store closed we used to ‘sound check’ some of the gear. The standard for fitted plugs was yet to come, so we jammed a pencil into the nearest earth socket and rammed all the other cables into their respective holes. Nobody died…

Peter Howard… Surprisingly, some of the guitars they sold are now worth a lot more than they cost. some mind, most were shite 🙂

Ralph Town… My first Bass came from Woolies 🙂 Soon realised it was a mistake lol

Stuart Ralls… I have several of my Embassy recordings released on CD. Was always a collector and have researched a lot about the labels history and it’s artists.

Tim Moose Bruce… Had a Woolworths guitar in the 70s. Got it 2nd hand for 15 quid with a Watkins Westminster amp.

Alan Vale… I brought a Watkins Scout in the 1980’s for a similar price fixed it used it and sold it to a friend of the drummer in Sidewinder
