The Blue Chips

  • Stuart Perry - harmonica/vocals
  • Dave Nightingale - guitar/vocals/harmonica
  • Brian Grant - drums and womanising
  • Geoff Parkinson - bass/vocals


After leaving Kathy and the Boleros, I formed the Blue Chips with the help of Dave Nightingale. We rehearsed the usual concoction of blues/r+b but we had the distiction of 2 excellent harmonica players in Dave and Stuart Perry. Sadly due to inexperience regarding the pursuit of bookings, this line up was short lived.

I went on to join Swinton band the Gonx and lifelong pal Rod Gerrard poached both Dave Nightingale and fiery drummer Brian Grant into Salford's own Hell's Angels.

I got my own back later though by recruiting Rod into Farnworth group Green Onions who became Outrage.
