Roger Carey… The Fender Hot Squad was held at Bonners Music Store Silverhill and I won a Fender TShirt for correctly answering a question about Jaco Pastorius.
Chris Meachen… I remember Jon Hiseman juggling drumsticks during his solo on the pier with ‘Tempest’. Found him very impressive…
Roy Penfold… As a teenager, spent far too long in Bonners drooling over the latest kit….
Janine Anne Scott… I knew Peter very well. I’m in contact with one of his sons still, Rick Bonner.
Ann Hohenkerk… It was an amazing shop, and Pete. Garry and Rick used to run a wide variety of workshops… Great times, great fun, and happy memories of working with them!
Mick Burt… I was there
Ernest Ballard… Great hand written poster. Before the printer and certainly before computers arrived
Geoff Peckham… Mick Parker’s still around and active – he tours a lot as Gilbert O’Sullivan’s MD. I play with him occasionally in The Hopdogs ceilidh band and The Lonnigans skiffle band. Great musician and lovely bloke.
Terry Pack… Rob Burns lives in New Zealand now. He is a University Professor, and has just finished writing a book about Progressive Rock (to which I made a small contribution).
Dave Weeks… Alan Murphy. Go West, mike and the mechanics? Died too young I believe.
Phil Little… SFX were a really good band. Used to see them at The Cricketers – Oval.
Paul Watson… I remember seeing Alan Murphy with the Hot Squad at a Bonners event in Diplocks, probably the same time. Great guitarist, left too soon.
Geoff Peckham… Mick Parker’s alive and well and living in West Sussex. I play with him occasionally. Lovely chap, great musician and is currently Gilbert O’Sullivan’s MD.
