Geoff Peckham… Thanks for these, Peter. I never saw the band, but was mates with Ted Barnes’ younger brother, Steve. Through him I met Bob Laurie and another brilliant Blues guitarist, Patrick Gaffney. I played bass in some jams at the Barnes residency around ’67, ’68 and that’s where I fell in love with the Blues.
Ian McGilvray… Love the jacket the Drummer is wearing !
Robert Searle… Why do people. play in front of the drummer . You’re right Mac ,what a great jacket ,you must have got hot wearing that.
Mick O’Dowd… Well Robert Searle haven’t you already realise that the drummer likes sitting at the back ‘cos that is where they’ve always been!
Geoff Peckham… A great set list. Only wish I could have heard them playing it. Bob Laurie was a great guitarist but was uncomfortable with public performance. He taught me one or two things about Blues guitar when I was about 15 including the use of the 9th chord.
Gaynor Duke… Ted Barnes is my brother in law and is still singing and plays good guitar now.
Alan Esdaile… Hi Gaynor Duke, please pass on the photos to Ted Barnes and it would be good to get some comments from him and other photos if he has any. Thanks.
Ted Barnes (Via Gaynor Duke)… The Swedish Student gig took place on his 17th birthday, he had seen the photos before but the set list triggered memories!
Chris Burt… Well done Pete. Different Times! I played BASS guitar – probably not very well!
Peter Fairless… Nice playlist!
Thomas (Ted) Barnes… Just found this website and wanted to thank Peter Horton for posting the photographs. Different times, as Chris Burt says, and a long time ago… but happy memories. Just in case anyone’s interested, some of my own recent music is available online (Spotify or Apple Music): an album called ‘Waiting for the Thunder’ by Barnes and Harvey.
