Catherine Ireland… Loved Steve Maxted at the Cobweb
Judy Atkinson… Used to go to see Steve a lot at the Aquarius – I think it was free for girls before 10pm. It was a school night so dad picked us up at 11 (we were 16)
Alan Esdaile… Shows how popular David Essex was, as his film was on at The Classic and The Curzon at the same time
Peter Fairless… Rock On!
Leigh Weiland-Boys… Saw him then & he stayed at The Queen Vic, where my friend was a receptionist, she worked that night so he gave her two free tickets to see him at the Brighton Dome & she took me! Double whammy!
Brigitte Lee… Where were the Penguin and The Orion?
Alan Esdaile… The Orion Cinema was next to the Old W H Smith (just down from the old main Post Office. The Penguin was where Dennies Club was, opposite Priory Street car park.
Chris Meachen… I was taking pictures for The Observer at that gig, along with the lovely Jennie Tocock who was attempting without much success, to get an interview with him..
Leigh Weiland-Boys… My Mum worked at the Observer at the time and got hold of a couple of photos from that night for me – I am not sure whether I still have them (moved a few times since 1974!!) but will have a look.
Jennie Tocock… He was a bit of a jerk if I remember rightly, Chris! We got so many great interviews with tons of the bands in those days … but dear old David was a bit too special to give us 5 minutes!
Alan Esdaile… Oh what a circus that must have been Jennie.
Lesley Bowles… My friend’s Mum worked in the White Rock box office and got me front row tickets, seat A20, I’ll always remember it – and so had the WR advertising poster on my wall for YEARS!!! Happy days!
Martin Curcher… I remember going to White Rock with my Mum, Aunt and Brother to see him perform, I was only 9, and it was loud. His hit song at that time was: Gonna make you a star.
Lesley Bowles… I was front row, 15 years old and cried through the whole thing – how I loved him
