That reminds me of a friend who died a few years ago. She was a big fan of Kevin Ayres when we were at school. Someone mentioned his name one day in the sixth form common room and she said "Ooh, orgasms orgasms" smiley - rofl

Happy days smiley - bigeyes

Blimey, what a week! But I suppose with the boom in the number of celebs that began in the mid 50s with the advent of rock and roll and television becoming a lot more popular they're going to be, well, dropping like flies smiley - run

Alvin Lee
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-21688814

I must be honest and say that apart from 'I'm Going Home', off the Woodstock album, I wouldn't know a Ten Years After or Alvin Lee song if it bit me on the bum, but that Woodstock performance more than makes up for it and I'd often play side 4 more than the other five.

Kenny Ball
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-21700146

For the average British man or woman who had no specialist knowledge of jazz in the 60s and 70s there was a handful jazz names everyone knew. I'd take a guess that Acker Bilk, Humphrey Littleton, Johnny Dankworth and Kenny Ball were probably the most well known. Kenny Ball had the advantage of being on television more often than the others (at least that's how it seemed to a young Gosho) especially on Morecambe and Wise, including the Christmas shows which half the population watched each year, and there weren't many others playing trad jazz. And in our house he got a little extra love because he was an east London boy smiley - biggrin

Strange feeling today. I met them all when I was a teenager helping at a Jazz festival. Some were nice and some were arrogant, but I loved the music, still do. Definitely a Trad person though not a fan of the improvised stuff.

I must say that in my 40s I very much enjoyed a night at Ronnie Scott's smiley - biggrin
