Tuesday evening and just back from The Spice Merchants in Osborne Road where Bill Edwards, driver/roadie etc (far right) organised a get-together to welcome guitarist Denny Barnes (third left) back on a visit from Australia. Full line-up (l-r) yours truly, Don Ruttle, DB, Bernie Fox, Dave Arthur, BE. Between us we played together in various bands including Blues Convention, Whiskey River and Gilbey Twiss (hello Mick Dillon!). We took the ladies too but they’re lurking in the background – and Bob Pearce, the south’s King of the Blues was there earlier, having sung with Blues Convention. For pics of us all in our younger days, consult the book (we’re older than that now).
PS: photos, take your pic. The best my ‘phone could do, with and without flash. This new technology!
PPS: Some of you will be pleased to note I’m wearing my brand new Levis 501s – which I did not buy in Gunwharf!
