Peter Shaw…..Hey guys, that’s the indomitable Stevie Zee with me behind my ’68 Ludwig…bass was I think occupied by Sir Colin Gibson…but it could’ve been Meister Terry Pack! Stevie, Colin and I performed at an internet televised gig from a London club after Colin and I took part in a rather delicious up market meal!  Great energy from The Zee!!

Phil Gill….Stevie Zee with Peter James Shaw on drums and me on bass.I remember Sambalanco had consumed all the hospitality beer by the time we got off stage

Ralph Town…..Stevie zee…really great guitarist.He used to have a second hand music store in Claremont,just down from the keyboards place

Pete Shaw….Aha, sorry Phil Gill, elements of my memory fail me! But, I do remember that Stevie Zee often used a face, so well known to us, of Bruce Forsythe in pain whilst cracking out searing guitar solos in one of those chords and keys that he knew…!! But, again, I did enjoy the gigs!!

Terry Pack….I played with Stevie for most of 1999. We did a lot of gigs up north with Chris Sharley on drums, including Burnley Blues Festival. My last gig was The Black Horse Festival that year. I think he went back to Spain…

Pete Shaw… There I am…dark glasses on sit tin’ behind my ole Ludwig at The Beach concert!

Ralph Town… Nice bloke and an amazing player.I,d love to see him play again but alas,I’m marooned in the Midlands 🙁

Terry Pack… I played with him for six months (?) during 1999: Burnley Blues Festival, The Borderline and lots of gigs up north. Ended my stint at The Black Horse Festival. A good player, but a clone of Stevie Ray Vaughan. It was fun working with Chris Sharley and Jo Brookes, though.

Pete Shaw… Haha! The Bruce Forsythe of facial expressions whilst playing any chord that needed 4 fingers! Played with him many times with Colin Gibson extracting amazing bass soundscapes whilst Stevie explored the outer limits of string bending…played my first internet broadcast from a London Club where, I am certain, we were perched on a shelf in front of a Stevie Zee fan club venue…Colin and I would take a leisurely dinner in upmarket restaurants prior to gig…leaving Stevie Zee to pace the dressing cupboard until we returned!! Thoroughly enjoyable times!!
