What Happened to Vernon Nash

Recommended Posts

Hi Vern, this is John Lee the drummer. Just wondering how you were,what you have been up to. Drop me a line, stay cool. John

 

I'm one of Vernon's 'Blasts from the past'. I'm Derrek Leigh & palled around with Vernon in our teenage Gleadless years, spending many hours round his dad's piano. smoking 'Capstan full strength!'

He introduced me to ice cream selling in Clumber Park & later got me lifts home after some Grease Band gigs in the band's van. I knew Pauline & Gres Earp too from those days, but doubt if they will remember me now. I could write a book on those times - Happy days! Would love to do catch-up with anyone interested? Please e-mail me at derrekleigh@talktalk.net

Oh yes. How sad. R.I.P. Joe

Hi Vernon,

Hope this reaches you. Would be great to do catch up after all these years, since we palled around together as teenagers in Gleadless. Please contact me at derrekleigh@talktalk.net or through Sheffield Forum. All the best. Derrek

   I am Vernon's brother, Nigel. I'm afraid Vernon died on 1st. July in the morning. He had been suffering from COPD for three years and needing oxygen almost continuously towards the end 

   I wanted to post something sooner but have only just worked out how to. I remember some of you from half a century ago. I remember being surprised when Gres told me his parents let him drink under age but not smoke. They were wise. Vernon was a heavy smoker living in a polluted city centre.

    I hope you are still all alive. It's very sad that the rock  'n' roll  era heydays are fading as more and more group members' lives come to an end.

    

I'm Vernon's brother, Nigel.  I'm sorry to say that Vernon died in Madrid on 1st. July from COPD? He was 73
