Bands of the sixties

Recommended Posts

Does anyone remember the bands of the sixties?

Sheffield had the greatest music scene next to Liverpool.

Come on you old musos, lets hear from you!

:D Yes I do remember and was thinking of my brother's band only this week. He played in The Vantennas and I have a copy of a great poster where they were the support band to The Rolling Stones at the City Hall in the 1960's. I have also a Sheffield Star pull-out 'special' about the local music scene, form that era, with the Vantennas photo on the front cove and would you believe a photo of an up-and-coming band, from Liverpool, on the back cover - The Beatles!

 

Good prompt thanks for the memories!

Although I was only 4 years old at the time, I remember Dave Graham Four and The Dave Hawley Combo. You could write a book! In fact someone has, it's called 'Not Like A Proper Job', available now!

Former Gas Fitter from Sheffield, yes Vance Arnold is Joe Cocker, but how come I think you might be taking the p*ss a little?
