Ian McGilvray… Nice One Tich

John Wilde… Hot stuff Tich.. lets see some more!

Mark Gilham… Great!

Colin Fox… Great to see Tich is still rockin´. Haven´t seen him for over 20 years and that was at one of the colleges in Meads Eastbourne.

Alan Esdaile… The mans got soul.

Martyn Baker… Tich Turner was the best soul singer I ever worked with. Or was it Martin Stringer? Or Pete Prescott? All of them were just great to be in the same band with – Steppin’ Out.

Pete Prescott… I never understood why I was in the band to be honest. Tich was amazing !

Martyn Baker…   We always HAD to have two lead singers Pete Prescott. It was our thing – you know, to bounce all that energy back and forth on stsge. Also, none of the other Hastings bands had that! Tee Hee!

Andy Knight…Great Band, Great Bloke Tich

Mick Mepham….A mighty line-up

Phil Gill….Good song. I’d left the band by that time and it was was Vince (Steve Vincent) playing bass on that record. I loaned Tich my white jacket for that photo session and I’m wearing Ray Fenwick’s leather jacket – it had “Marlon” writ large across the shoulders at the back. Some of us were to refer to Ray as “Marlon” from that day forward….

Mick O’Dowd…..What a good band they were and Tich is still going!
