The group were one of the first to start up in the Stalybridge/Dukinfield area - a couple of years before the Meteors, Bridgebeats etc. and must have inspired a lot of groups
Ronnie Bentley (lLead) was instrumental in getting the Meteors started and helped us a lot, and I was talking to one of The BridgeBeats the other day, and we were reminiscing how we got started and I couldn't believe it when he said "The lead guitarist from Danny & the Strangers gave us lessons"
Ronnie has a lot to answer for.
