Was talking on the phone last night to the guy who played piano in the Greycats way back. Apparently he's still doing gigs, one of which is Saturdays at the Shiny Chef at Lodgemoor. I last saw him on stage about 4 years ago and the band was going great guns. Well worth a look in if you live in that area. I believe Pat Lesley still sings with them. I'd go myself but I'm 80 miles away. I am at the Arena tomorrow though to see Cliff and the Shads.

I've known Pat Lesley since I was tiny! She's a lovely lady.

I worked with Denis at English Steel Co Ltd many years ago, he told me about playing on the beach at Blackpool for a television company and he was well paid I understand. He used to live on Bellhouse Road when he married.

I'm jealous. Stuck in North Wales. Can't get. If you get a chance, could you say Hi to Barry (keyboards) from Mick and Helen. I played rhythm guitar when he was in the Raiders.

Skippy went to see them at Shiny Sheff a couple of years ago with a chum of mine David Barnes (Barnsey) who used to play keyboards with them when they started hundreds of years ago! They were great, I bought their CD and still play it.Spoke to several members of the band that night but sorry can't remember any names. Shooter

Are you from grimesthorpe

I'm talking about Pat & The Greycats around mid 80s...Roger Jackson drummer ; Terry ?? lead guitar ; cannot recall the bass player's name but think from Swinton?? Could not believe Pat still belting it out...must get to see her if she at the Shiny Sheff again - I only live down the road so no excuse!!
