Another band was 'The Dixieland Hummingbirds' which Graham probably doesn't remember; the band only ever had one gig at a party in a photographic studio with a free bar which Graham took more than full advantage of. When we finally went on to play, Graham blew one note then fell off the stage.
He spent the rest of the gig locked in the one and only toilet. We were not invited back.
And then there was the New Years Eve gig at Bramhall Cricket Club with me (Pete Crooks) and John Dickinson on Guitars, Bruce Mitchell on drums and a guy that Graham had met in a pub that lunch time...

I can remember a couple more bands that Atty played with as well. The Beagles for one. We played Bredbury Hall once, another night with Atty that I can't recall! Also, Fitch's Itch's once or twice.
Having known and played with Atty for a bit over 30 years (The Soulbandits included) I have perilously few memories of these tremendous occasions. I rely on other people to tell me I was there!! Cheers Dad!!!
