During the mid sixties I played in a Middleton band called The Little Things. At this time we were all about 16 years old and followed Tom's Rigg about who were that bit older. Mike Connelly their lead guitarist suggested becoming our manager and it was Mike who gave us our name. Although our new name was not too popular with our lads is was Mike's idea and so we went along with it.
We played together for a couple of years our highlight appearing at The Boneyard in Bolton following Toms Rigg who had peformed the first spot on the same night. We disbanded some months later but we have stayed in touch as mates. We lost touch with Mike who was a really good guy and I was sad to hear of his passing many years ago. Same with Tommy Rigby from Tom's Rigg and I went to his funeral about four year ago.
'The Little Things' fifty years on
