Pete Millington… Audience at the ITT Dance held at the White Rock Theatre on 10th January 1975 – My sister Jane is third from right front row (is in front second from right!) I recognise several other faces but not their names – any ideas?

Matt Thomas… Had that very same picture of Peter Goodwright up in the bar – would love to know where all those pictures went

Alan Esdaile… Can you remember who the support was Colin?
Matt Thomas… Probably played one of my favourite tunes ‘Rosetta’
Mick O’Dowd… Remember working on this one. I think it may have been Martin-Casson only gig at White Rock.
Colin Bell… I can’t be absolutely certain but I think they were called ‘Highway’, I remember the actual night very well as they were a heavyish rock band and the audience hated them! I should add that it wasn’t because Highway were bad far from it, it was just not what the audience were expecting as a support act, I liked them! The late Paul Casson and I hid in the bar til the second half when F & P did their set. Fortunately the night then ended well! Not the best night to be compere, especially in my home town..lol..Also backstage it was clear F & P didn’t get on, they arrived separately didn’t speak a word to each other and left separately without a word. On stage together chemistry, offstage………Ah the memories!..
Terry Hardwick… Stranger On The Shore . What a beautiful song that fills me with lots of warm nostalgic thoughts.
Paul Morfey… He also played the beer festival, on a Sunday, not sure which year?? About 15 years ago. That tune brings childhood flooding back.
Sue James… Saw him in Hastings, and my parents had stranger on the shore, I was only a few years old but loved listening to it
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
Matt Thomas… I was there lol
Mark Mackenzie… We saw them at The Congress in Eastbourne and i am ashamed to say i fell asleep and started snoring, we were near the front row and after a kick in the shin from the wife i woke up and the blonde girl in the band was glaring at me……don’t blame her……
Matt Thomas… Was around the same time I saw Darts at The Congress
Nick Prince… I actually saw them at that concert. They were basically everything you would expect them to be. Middle of the road stuff that sounded almost like their records. I’ll leave it there I think. It hasn’t been that many years that I would admit seeing stuff like that.
Matt Thomas… It was years later when I was working behind the bar at White Rock that I noticed a signed picture of them on the wall in the bar along with other famous acts Roger de.Coucey and Anita Harris,wonder what happened to those pictures,they seemed to vanish without trace lol
Nick Prince… Lol. Now I wonder what happened to those. I remember the Anita Harris pic being there. Not forgetting that Brother Hood of Man beat Frank Ifield in the 1976 Song For Britain.
Now I wonder what would have happened if he represented us? I say 12 off Switzerland and some token points from Ireland and Malta . Or am I being unfair? Somehow i don’t think he would have won
