Pete sadly died a few years back, could do a great Eddie Cochrane.

I used to wait on at Bold St WmC in the early 60's with a blond haired lad called Nick who lived right next door but don't recall him playing the guitar

By the way, in my other post I suggested The Warriors van was a Commer but I believe it was actually an old Bedford, like the one here. Was it painted orange, or is that another mis-remembered detail?
The Andersons lived opposite my grandparents, on the corner of Norfolk and Turkey Streets, and I certainly recall the excitement, at least amongst some of us early teens, when they appeared on Thank Your Lucky Stars.
Hi Exile just come across this and don't want to split hairs but the Andersons lived at number 13 not the corner house. Cheers

Re: ACCY POP GROUPS 1960s

Thanks for the quick reply Olly, I knew Paul when he lived in Chapel St with his Gran, he worked at Thwaites as a delivery man. The names from the Derby bring back many happy memories. Ian I was told got done with Tony Mills and someone else for nicking mail bags from the station. Vito tried to sell me some Henna which he said was weed. One name you missed Billy `Jesus` Cook who sadly passed away. Sorry to hear about Florrie. I`ve been retired for a long time now and live in Heysham. All the best, take care.
