Back in the good old days,I was resident drummer at Intake,Tinsley,Brinsworth,Silverwood,Golden Dragon and Aquarius.BBC Radio Sheffield and occasional deps for TC at the Fiesta.Over the years,I became a close friend and drummer with a lot of the Stars of tomorrow including My very good pal Paul Shane,Marti(Lynn),Tony Whyte,Lynn Perrie,Bobby and Tommy aka Cannon and Ball.The relationships between fellow resident musicians and 't'turns in general was like one big happy family.In hindsight what a blessing it was to be part of the Clubland scene back in the 60s and 70s.So sad to read and hear of clubs closing, the scene drying up along with the passing of so many of my Muso mates and Entertainer friends.

I was working in Jersey at the Opera House for the Max Bygraves,Frankie Vaughn show while Ronnie and Ricky and the boys were at Behans West Park.I met the lads a lot over the Season along with Terry who Ive known for years from our times on the clubs,Dean and Perry came to Max Bygraves recording session ,one on bass one on Percussion,I played drums on the session.It was a terrible shock for all of us on the Island when Ronnie passed.Ricki came back later in the season to close out the final days of the season.I told Deano and Perry that I lived on Brinsworth Road and Brinsworth hall Estate when they lived at the end of Brinsworth Road and Broadway.

Tinsley Club .

Memories flood back. My drum residency with Iris Ward on the Organ was a great time.Full houses, Johnny Duffy,Graham McLain, Canon and Ball.

Bobby Ball refused admission to the club by the door. “Ar tha filliated ?””tha come in if tha not”

Chairman Tommy Ball to the rescue.”Don’t worry lad,I’ll sign there in”. Sad I had to leave but Radio Sheffield and the Aquarius came calling for me .
