Alan Esdaile… I remember making badges for this band. The problem was the logo was too big and struggled.
Tony May… There’s a good chance I was at this gig! I thought ‘Hooker’ were great! They did a fabulous version of ‘Ain’t No Love In the Heart Of The City’ (Whitesnake) and I kept on to the one in the band who worked at the school for a cassette recording but he never gave me one. Brings back a lot of memories seeing the old Grove School again…
Roy Penfold… I believe this band eventually became Shy Boy who you have previously featured Alan!
