Blessed to grow up in great era , George the manic tailor , dancing on stage with Jimmy James and Vagabonds.
Did I really see Jimi Hendrix in Otley Pub ?
Blue bombers and just crazy fun.
Anyone out there that remembers ?
The guys selling papers were William Druery , Keith Bingham and Colin Vernon who frequented the BG , etc. I remember Frank Richardson who worked at Saxone , always smart. I recall he went to Majorca in 1966 when the first package holidays started. There was a party one night at his gfs place (Sandra ?) and the house was trashed. There was quite a crowd at the BG and lots of slagging off. I remember School friends , Eric Clarkson and Hugh Montgomery. I think Daz lived round the corner from a friend of mine near Dragon bend. There was Barry and Freda too. Lots of faces I recall but cant put names to. Susan Stranks rings a bell. Many others and like you say good times.
