Sam E, Dave A, Keith S

A close up of the three guys on the left in the photo below – the first time all three of us from Harlem Speakeasy have met together since late 1968. Left to right: Sam Eddings (drums), yours truly (this-and-that) and Keith Shilcock (bass guitar then guitar). Keith later played with Phil in Image and since then has always been a pro musician, not least in the bands working with visiting American soul/funk acts. He’s back living down this way now. Sam became a helicopter pilot and now trains others to do the same.

They played one side of our one one record in the service:

  1. Thank you Keith, Sam and Dave for attending Geoff’s funeral today. I greatly appreciate that, as well as Sarah (younger sister of Geoff and I) making the arrangements and our cousins and their spouses making the journey to be there. The close up picture of Geoff was taken in Glen Mills, Pennsylvania in July 1979, on one of his several visits to us there.

  2. Although not ‘on my radar’ at the time, a tune to help send Geoff of with a smile ,and to celebrate this special day https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7w6j0O_7BHA
