Albert Lee coming to Hailsham Pavilion 2nd March 2019. more details… http://spyboy.co.uk
Mick Bean… Have you ever met someone well known and not known who they were? I spent time chatting to a bloke in a London pub back in the day, we drank together and shared our thoughts about the pop music of the day. Dave from Chas and Dave came over and joined us, after a while the penny dropped and I realised it was Albert Lee. I was at a pre “Buddy Holly Week” get together. The following day at the concert I again met Albert in the toilets, we shared urinals… He later played on stage with the gathered musicians. Oddly enough I attended the same event the following year and it was Albert who came and spoke to me. I told him that I had no idea who he was the first time we met and he said he realised that and enjoyed the “normal” chat that he so missed.
Pete Prescott… Great story. I’ve heard he is a lovely guy.
Gerry Fortsch… Brilliant guitarist.
Tim Moose Bruce… 1986, at the 6 Bells at Chiddingly. Johnny Mars band on that night. Talking and drinking with a guy at the bar. 2nd set he got on the keyboard and did an amazing version of Green Onions. The band then introduced Keith Emerson!
Pete Prescott… I did a gig at the six bells for his sons birthday. Kieth Emerson played a few songs with us. I ended up singing In the back bar with him. He was very drunk. Hilarious and a nice guy. Never forget it.
Sandy Max… Yes I once spent a lovely afternoon in a pub in Notting Hill talking to a nice lady…when she left a group of youngsters came running up to her begging for her autograph….the penny dropped and I realised I’d been chatting to Annie Lennox
