A surfeit of bands
Bunking in via the cinema
I remember seeing so many top bands almost on a daily basis! Could you afford that now? We managed as we would normally bunk in via the cinema , sometimes taking in the film on the way! The last leg was a long staircase up to the venue patrolled by an easily-bribed security bloke.
Queuing for The Stones
I particularly remember when War played, only when we got in we found that Eric Burdon was not there with them . The also management were very good and gave refunds to disappointed fans; so we did a few laps bunking in then claiming the refund : or is that a legend? We also queued all night for Stones tickets: down Ship Street, I seem to remember .
Did we know each other?
Peter Groves – I think we knew each other. Did you live in Hangleton? Did you have a brother called…..er Groves – sorry can’t remember his christian name. If you are he, you would remember maybe Tony Oliver, Hilary and Rachel Heath, Colin and Brian.

Neville and his bomb
I remember the Cottage, in particular very a tall guy called Neville. He nearly blew himself up playing with some kind of home made bomb/firework in the Cottage. Give us a shout if you can Peter – I would really like to hear how you are going You can mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
