Don Golding RIP

More sad news – I’m very sorry to report his death, he had been poorly for a while. Don was a guitarist/bass player and a bit of a local legend, having played from the late 1950s to the very recent past. This photo shows him (on the right) in the original Renegades around 1960:

Next came the Dynamos who reached the Final of ITV’s ‘Ready Steady Win!’ (1964?) and had a track on the album of the show (again on the right):
Dynamos 1964 2
There were other bands too (eg the Boyfriends) and the final photo shows him just last year and his special number “What’d I Say” with the reformed Danny Raven & the Renegades. He was a lovely bloke who will be missed:

Count Prince Miller RIP

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’.
