I had a cousin from Clayton who was singer in the Dappers, his name was Billy Drinkwater, he was a joiner, and worked at Lancashire bar fitters, he worked with a bloke called Geoff Whiteside.

Good old Billy Bean, Billy and Sam Scott, put the first bar in Ossy Con around 1964, I as on the committee at the time and can remember talking to them at the time, and it wasn't long after that I got a job there too. Think Billy's brother played Cricket for Enfield

Beechy - I remember now you mentioned the name George - he did play drums for a short time while I was not playing. I remember he had a Premier (?) kit - much better than mine and I had an occasional go on it while it was left in John Cunliffe's front room at 45 Willows Lane. I'm very sorry about Haircut Geoff. He was a good guy. Such a shame some people took against him - we had to have a police escort out of Bacup after playing at the Irish WMC there when someone decided they disliked him enuf to attack.

Talking about the groups Mr C, any chance of getting Roy Tayor or Mick Sturzaker to give us a bit of history of thier time in the groups they were in, In that great decade. It would be historically significant for the history of Accrington for generations to come and not just to focus on Jon Anderson & the Warriors.

I like the Accy Rockers, they're well worth a look if they're in your neck of the woods, they do a lot of charity gigs and its usually a good night out

Does anyone remember the James Boys? Apparently they narrowly missed out to Freddie & The Dreamers for an Opportubity Knocks spot in the 60's. I'm told they were good but don't know anyone outside of my immediate family who ever heard of them.
