The last time I heard Ian was living up Green Haworth, but I haven't seen him for years, Ian is probable one of the best local guitarists I've ever seen, he used to use lots of Jazz cords brilliant

Think he may still pop up the Stanley Street Pub occasionally on the Monday Jam nights, but i've not been up there for a while now, good guitarist, as you say! I was driving back from Ossy one night last year, and i switched on the radio and there was a programme on which i think was for local musicians, the presenter said they were going to play a track from Ian's latest CD, so he must have recorded something around that time, but i did'nt get to hear it. Have a feeling it was for a Charity, but not certain.

I saw the Warriers at the Con during a private function. They were very young at the time and, although good, fluffed some of the guitar sequences. When I saw them some months later at Great Harwood's Mercer Hall they were terrific.

When Tony and Ian left the Warriors, they formed another group called Tony and the Tea Leafs, so um perform at Spring Hill on a Saturday night, but they didn't carry on long after that:rolleyes:

Re: ACCY POP GROUPS 1960s
 
The honest answer to that would be "Dunno!" The occasion at the Con would have been around 1965/6 though if that's any help?

Tony and Ian Alveston left the warriors in 1962, when Jon and Tony Anderson took over, Jon left the group in 1967 to follow a solo career before joining Yes, Not sure but think Jon made to records under the name of Hans Christian Anderson but can't remember much about them

No I dont think Nosmo Kings where pre Jay Turner Four. The only connection as I can remember may have been Noel Smith (drummer with the Jay Turner Four) whom I think at one time did play for the Nosmo Kings. The Nosmo Kings if I remember correctly where managed for most of the time by Lennie Herbert from Great Harwood, who regular had them on at the Mercer Hall and can remember them supporting a Lennie Herbert promotion with headliners Nero & The Gladiators. Also the lead singer with the Nosmos(for a long number of years was very pally with the jay Turner Four and I think he did one or two guest spots, so I can see where there maybe a little confusion.

The Vidors became the Dynamites, The Dynamites became the Jay Turner Four, The Jay Turner Four became the James Turner Four and the James Turner Four became Second Time Around. This band spanned (the band spanned over 20 plus years with varying members) but the long term main players where: Gerard Navin (lead) John Tillotson (Bass) Ronnie Green (Rhythm & Vocals) Noel Smith (Drums) Vocalist: The late James Turner, The late Billy Kerr. also: John Turner Drums
