I can remember going to a couple of good concerts in the City Hall – the Flames, Otis Waygood and a revolting outfit called Suck.
Every Saturday night, my mates and I would go to the “sessions” at Harker’s Hall or Jewish Guild Hall. Oh yeah, remember Omega Limited and Tchiakovski I? Had a great guitarist called Louis Greef.
Yeah, I went to Milton with the Zipper boys, Ivor Rubenstein (drummer) Leigh Sagar (guitar) etc. I don’t know if you ever heard the Clapton of Rhodesia play? He was also a Jewish guy called Benny Miller. He was years ahead of his time. I heard him jam once with Waygood.
Ah well…..those were the days.
