Billy Storm

Bert P & Peter Hicks

Billy (Bert Parker) is the singer on the left

We’ve not heard about the late BS/BP for some time, but this message just appeared and it’s worth displaying here as it may get lost as a ‘way back’ comment. Thanks Dave:

“God Bless, Dear Bill.¬†I had the pleasure of being in The Crescendos with him around 1963 / 1964 – Nobby Glover was on Drums & Bill was our superb vocalist. Our tour of Germany was a real highlight of my life – great times. Cheers, Dave (Whitt)”

IOW ’69 (Bob)

From Albie Somerset (cheers)

“There’s been a couple of articles in press about how Dylan ended up on the Isle of Wight Festival instead of Woodstock, to coincide with a new book out by Ray Foulke, first one was in the Independent.

And the second one was in the News (today) which doesn’t have a link to it yet.”

It’s a bit like being Telegram Sam

From Nigel Baker for Phil Freeman in particular but the rest of you lot too – although I think the ‘dream job’ is no more (?):

“I’ve always loved 10cc but have been a bit sceptical as Graham Gouldman was the only original member. Anyway I swallowed my prejudice and went to see them in Crawley last night. They were absolutely fantastic. All I can say if Phil actually gets paid to work around those vocals he must have just about my dream job. [And I say that, having seen McCartney at the O2 on Saturday who was still pretty damn good]”

This Sporting Life

(Sorry Oscar – still no cap, no tie!). Martin departs his final lunch yesterday, in a weekend that predominantly featured eating (we didn’t actually¬†play tennis)

Meanwhile Pete, don’t worry overmuch about the wild west because it wasn’t on Portsea Island and apparently the culprits are from Fareham. They don’t behave over that way you know (there’s song about it)

As for Mr Mook, if he got back from his various ‘trips’ to Sussex and caught that Mr Strange Norrell thing on the telly he will have heard the following alarming exchange:

“How are you finding Portsmouth sir?”

“I dislike Portsmouth intensely.”

I’m organising a boycott of further episodes

Twinkle RIP

She’s died. I guess she’ll hook up with Terry at the gates now. Apparently she was a very posh bird who went to school with that Camilla who’s sort-of nearly almost queen (if you get my drift).
