Nigel Ford… My Aunt took my Bruv & I to see either Ferry Cross the Mersey with Gerry & the Pacemakers or a Beatles film at the Gaiety, Queens Road around ’63 (?) and the supporting film starred Heinz, but I can’t remember the title, but vividly remember my Aunt saying afterwards “thank you for introducing me to Heinz”
Alan Esdaile… I think it must be ‘Live It Up’ Nigel. Great clip below, a rather young looking Steve Marriott.
Nigel Ford… Could that be Jet Harris on guitar ? I seem to recognise him? Looking on allmusic.com it seems it was likely Ritchie Blackmore, ‘ knew the face was familiar from somewhere…
Mick O’Dowd… Saw “The Blonde One” in The Tornadoes as Billy Fury’s backing band at The ABC( now ESK) in Cambridge Road.

Lawrence Ralph… Is this the same Riot Squad, that David Bowie recorded 4 – 1967 demos with, released on a 2013 Acid Jazz label E.P ?.

Trevor Webb… Interesting coincidence .just reading biography of David Bowie by Simon Goddard Ziggyology a brief History of Ziggy Stardust. I was never into David Bowie at School but a number of my friends were. Apparently David Bowie met the Lower Third a beat group from Margate in La Gioconda in Denmark Street, London. No mention of Hastings gigs.
