Terry Pack……Brings back some happy memories . Wasn’t Cathy beautiful!

Dave Easton……Wonderful times.

Colin Fox…..Didn´t Cathy dance with Legs & Co on top of the pops? and isn´t that her sister top right?

Terry Pack……She was in The Young Generation, which was ITV’s version and danced on shows like Lift Off. Yes, that’s Linda, top right.

Pete Shaw….We used to play at The Continental Club, Eastbourne which was a three/four storey building which is now Laura Ashley….had to carry the kit up to the third floor and we were great competition for Eastbourne bands…one drummer used to leave chewing gum on my drum stool….it stopped when I stuck one on him..literally….I did succumb some years later and joined an Eastbourne band…but this is where playing away from Hastings really started…we were friends with The Lurking Gromwells!!…a Ninfield band…at least Graham had a Thames Trader 15cwt Van that we turned over at Cowbeech! The farmer was more interested in the integrity of his recently replaced 5 bar gate than us…I left via the shattered windscreen to pick up my scattered drums along the Lane!! Remember that Dave!! Graham’s Van was, yep, well bent and left outside his home!

Andy Qunta….Oh the good old days, eh Pete! Great stories!

Robert Searle….Great stories Pete.The O’Driscolls had some great photos of the Lurking Gromwells. Don’t know if they still have them though.
