Barry Barron RIP

1 Comment

I’m sorry to record the recent death of Barry Barron (info from Mick Cooper), a Pompey Rock & Roller of the really early days. The band pictured is the Live Five (Barry middle guitar) who were featured briefly in the film “Expresso Bongo” (Cliff Richard, Laurence Harvey etc). The other photo shows Barry (right) with Chris Harvey the guitarist on the left at the City Museum in March 2010, when I interviewed them as part of the exhibition there. The funeral is at Portchester at midday on Wednesday. RIP

  1. Correct me if I’m wrong, wasn’t he in the Bill Cole Quintet in latter years ?
