Johnny - is that really you ?
It's Ken from Ashton, I played bass with Oggie mid sixties. You joined us in '66, you used to have us all in stitches. On my birthday you and Oggie tried to get me drunk (successfully). We did 'They're Coming to take Me Away haha' wearing white lab coats, with Dave in a safari suit and pith helmet!
I remember playing at the Green Dragon with you and Wokky, I was on double bass. I stayed with Oggie till '68. Sadly Oggie died last year.
We were playing at The Old Hall when you and Mick came to ask me to start a group with you and a keyboard player called Keith, he had a little white Fiat, Lally was involved too. We practiced (a lot of soul stuff)but when we were offered a German tour I pulled out, I'd just got a new joband I was in a 'serious' relationship.
I heard a lot of stories about that tour but I'd like to know anything you can remember of those times. In the early seventies I did a bit with Gary(Roberts)he was getting heavily into jazz, then I was in a resident band at the Imperial club, Kirkby for a few years.
Hope you are keeping well
