The Royal Oak (Alderley Edge)
The Royal Oak was visited by some great names from the 60s. The Merseybeats, Hermans Hermits, The Ivy League, the Hollies - you name them, they all came to watch the "Harbour Lights".
When this line up ended in 1968, sometime later we formed a band with Eric Haydock (ex Hollies) on bass, Rick Rothwell (ex Mindbenders) on drums, me on rhythm guitar & Peter Baldwin on lead.
