Cheryl Baker, Bill Pertwee & Steve Johnson – Cinderella pantomime – White Rock Theatre December 1991/January 1992

Matt Thomas… This was the panto the following year after I went ill, I went to the panto party and Cheryl Baker had heard of me lol One of claims to fame

Paul Crimin… I worked with Cheryl Baker once, in a studio in St Johns Wood, London. My job was to drop pancakes on her head from an out of shot step ladder. Oh the glamour of it all…

Monsters of Glam Rock Sweet and Mud – tour programme – White Rock Theatre Hastings 1990’s

Supplied by Colin Bell

Anyone remember this, or the year? Colin thinks The Glitter Band were also on the bill.

Matt Thomas… 91 or 92 I was in the Yelton sitting next to Les Gray.

Ian Mantell… it was just Sweet and Mud, Brian Connolly was in a bad way but his voice was still strong. A clue to the date is the use of the expression “Brian Connolly’s Sweet” he and Andy Scott had been in dispute over the name and so agreed to identify which band was playing in the early 90’s

Karen Sweatman… I was there dancing like a prat! Think it was around 91. You might be interested to know around 1990 I saw a band at The Crypt called The Wandering Crutchless with two ex members of Sweet in. They were brilliant

Jan Warren… Sweet are playing at The dlwp, Bexhill on The 21st December!

Ralph Town… I think the story of Sweet Mk1 is one of the saddest in music.
