Mick has drawn my attention to tributes in tonight’s paper to John Bullock who died recently. We are sure he is the same John who played in the Talismen and Lace around the city (and further afield) in the 60s. The spread from the Record Mirror (above) records the success of the Talismen in a national competition. We offer our sympathy to all his family and friends.
The full line-up of the Talismen was Mick Reeves (V/G) , Pete Pinkney (G), John Bullock (BG), Dick Ray (D). Mick was later replaced by Roger Barber (V/G) – he joined Arthur Ward’s band.
