Hi Viv, no, well I mean yes, I also liked ALL the 40's & 50's music, my ORIGINAL like was Buddy Holly, still got all his vinyl now, but as I got older my real likes were the bands mentioned earlier, I used to be a member of "The Middle Earth", this was, for the use of a name, a night club, but for hippies and the like. It was in a basement/cellar in Covent Garden in London, used to open about 10pm and close about 8am, it was there I first saw the Floyd, Zoot Money, The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown and various others too numerous to mention. At that time a friend of mine started a security firm called "Blackheath Securities" we used to do most of the festivals (as security/bouncers) in Hyde Park, The Lyceum (in the Strand-London) also various other venues where we actually became friends with a lot of the bands, unfortunately that's all history now, but memories nevertheless.
