My Profound Apologies!

I’d like to pretend I was checking you were awake but actually I put up a (rather nice) photo of Danny Raven & the Renegades on the previous post, so I’ll try again. Here are the Dynamos, fitting Marc’s story below!

Dynamos Ricky's 62 -63

So, we have photos of Marc and his mates from late 1950s below and early 1960s above and (thanks to Mick) here he is, still gigging yesterday in North End with Ruby & the Renegades – there are more of these on the Pompey Pop Facebook site.

One thought on “My Profound Apologies!

  1. Just to tie up the pic with the text!

    The Dynamos – me, Tony Dawes, Don Golding and Colin Wood at Ricky’s Club circa 1962. We are wearing the spanish style suits made by Colin’s Mum out of black sailcloth, with yellow stripes on the pants (!)

    The guitars are a collectors dream (Pete White take note!) Mine, a 1961 sunburst Fender Stratocaster. Don’s also a ]1961 sunburst Stratocaster and Colin’s, a 1960/61 sunburst Fender Precision Bass. If only we still had them! The Strats’ value today (approx) £15,000 each and the bass (approx) £10,000.

    I guess a lot of us have had some amazing guitars we wish we had hung on to!
