band started about five years ago when "Big Al"
and his band split up which was called Breathless at that
time we had a bass player called Dave who used to stand
in for Johnny Kid & the pirates in the 60's, we also
had a drummer called Steve who was a college lecturer
but was more of a 70's style drummer. We rocked around
Liverpool a lot in the early days and started to get a
good name but as all good things come to an end the lead
singer and the drummer did not see eye to eye and the
band decided to call it a day. Within three weeks and
lots of itchy fingers later, the band reformed with a
new line up, as Big Al the lead guitarist had had enough
of all the bickering and lack of enthusiasm but Bob would
not let it die, we ended up with Pete Barsdle from Manchester
on lead guitar, Graham Brand from Ribchester (now in Vendettas)
on Double Bass and Paul the Drummer from the Rhythmaires
so we rocked around for twelve months having a good time.
Until Paul the Drummer decided he wanted to leave to start
his own project and in came Wayne our present Rock n Roll
Drummer. Eventually the band split up "AGAIN".
But Bob would not let it die again and his quiff started
to fall out with the lack of Rock n Roll. So a phone call
later and Big Al after a 12 month break returned to the
band as lead guitarist and Dave his mate the Bass player
came to. So nearly the original line up apart from the
drummer, we rocked around again for quite a long while
and unfortunately Dave the Bass player had rheumatism
in his fingers had to hang up his bass after playing for
40 years "wot a guy". We still had gigs booked
in for the coming months so we needed a bass player very
soon and in stepped Geoff who played with the Winchesters
for the last ten years with the nick name of "Horace".
This had to go we call him "Big Slap Daddy"
the granddad of the band and so the story ends for now
as there are no arguments and we are all mates, with a
bit of persistence Rock N Roll does live on.
