Andre Martin… Worked with both on the military circuit -both great acts and nice people.

Chris Giles… I went to see Peter Noone at the White rock..

Tim Poole… Hi, can you tell me if Hermans Hermits played in Hastings between 73 and 75? I have a memory of my Nan taking me to a concert around that time. Many thanks.

Alan Esdaile… The only thing I can find is Peter Noone played The White Rock Pavilion on the 20th August 1972. Anyone else got any information on other locals gigs he did in the 70’s?

Tim Poole… That was the concert I remember.

Andre Martin… Thinking back, I am sure that Peter left the group in early 70s and went solo to US, the band that I can remember working with would have been The Hermits, there is a TV programme on Peters life that was made a few years back and that would have more dates, it often pops up on Sky Art ?

Sue James…  I saw Peter noon in the Anchor it must have been late sixties early seventies

Alan Esdaile…  I wonder if the barman said to him.. Sorry, no milk today

Roy Hudd’s Music Hall – White Rock Pavilion Hastings 7th June 1976

Jim Breeds… Everything I disliked about the sort of cr** my parents liked is encapsulated by this advert!

Martin Richter… roy hudd is a master :-0

Jim Breeds… Yes, I liked him. Especially on Radio doing the News Huddlines. But this “variety” stuff was everything that was bad about light entertainment.

Martin Richter… he’s a variety genius – paul merton is the same with b&w films ?

Chris Baker… Well Jim, if you liked it, you’d be as old as your parents!

Julie Felix – White Rock Pavilion Hastings – 2nd June 1974

Dave Nattress… Would I be right in saying Mama’s gonna take us to the zoo tomorrow? And…we can stay all day.

Neil Partrick… Message Music was interviewed by me and he mentioned what it was like working with Julie http://oldfolkrebels.blogspot.com/…/kelvin-message-life…

Phil Gill… Ten pence!!

Alan Esdaile…  I think this is the programme price Phil. However we were seeing top rock acts on the pier for 50p/60p at the time.

Pete Fisher… Actually Phil, it says here that both Dave and Alan of the Athelstan Band play electric plectrum guitars, which I believe you do as well. It also says that Alan has learnt to play the Hawaiian Steel Guitar in an effort to produce a different sound, and that both brothers have learnt to play banjo. I think this sets a remarkable example to upcoming musicians like yourself, which you might do well to take note of…

Barry French… Tina worked at Mullett Smith Music around this period. Occasionally she would play keyboards with Bob Smiths Band the Alamo at the Yorkshire Grey Pub London Road

David Miller… Aha – those must be the electric plectrum guitars of which they spoke…I don’t see what makes the plectrums electric though…batteries, maybe?
