Sad news for all of us of a Birdcage vintage. Count Prince Miller the ‘showman’ and second vocalist with Jimmy James & the Vagabonds has died – in fact a couple of weeks back, but there is an obituary in today’s Guardian. He was also Vince in the sitcom about the barber’s shop ‘Desmond’s’.
Tuxedo Junction, are back at the wonderful Wheatsheaf Public House in Shedfield, on Saturday September 8th 2018.
Many thanks to Lenny for reminding us that this weekend is the 50th Anniversary of the first Isle of Wight Festival that ran over Saturday evening and into Sunday morning. Topping the bill were San Francisco’s Jefferson Airplane, plus a bunch of UK acts including Crazy World of Arthur Brown, Fairport Convention, Pretty Things, the Move and Tyrannosaurus Rex. Plus MC Rikki Farr of course.
(And no I didn’t. I was on a series of weekend gigs in the Stockport/Manchester area with Harlem Speakeasy)
