John Mcewen….I was there!

Joe Knight… A great act

Alan Esdaile… I remember seeing Roy Wood early evening and shocked to see him with a normal haircut. I never realised he wore a wig on stage.

Joe Knight… Never got to see him, got married in 1970 and very little money.

Mick O’Dowd… Brilliant artist/band.

Martin Round… I remember that night so well. Before the gig Andrew Killick  and I were in the bar and he just walked in and joined us, and he was dressed in all his finery. He was back later dressed down too. Nice guy!

Gerry Fortsch… I was there. I saw Roy Wood at the London rock & roll show when Ballpark first came out and I have seen him a number of times since including this gig at the pier.

Paul Slidel… I was only 12 in 1973 and would loved to have seen Wizard on the pier, but ‘See My Baby Jive’ and ‘Angel Fingers’ were the first 2 singles I bought from Disc Jockey in Queens Road in the same year!

Martin Waghorne… Remember it well, i was there

Peter Fairless… Of course, I was way too young(!) to have gone to this gig but Wizzard remain one of my favourite bands.

Harry Randall… He was living in Catsfield my old drummer from “Footloose and Slack Alice” did some session work for him

Di Veness… We were there Keith.
