GUEST,banjoman What ever happened to the Spinners ? (118* d) RE: Origins: What ever happened to the Spinners ? 16 Jan 07

Great to see so many still remember the sixties in liverpool and the contribution made by the likes of the Spinners to the Folk Revival.
It was fashionable to knock them mainly because of their popularity, but they were one of the all time greats to me and my wife Maggie who were part of the scene in liverpool in the sixties & seventies.
Somewhere I still have my membership card (N0 2 I think) for the Spinners club at the Gregsons Well. I recall one occasion when fan adulation went over the top there, when the Spinners were on a tour of Sweden (I think) but a local group of youngsters (Swindlefolk) were on at the Gregson. At, they were bustled off stage and a television wheeled on so that the fans could watch "The Spinners Live " from somewhere or other. Thats what you call adulation. No one there complained although I would have prefereed to listen to more from Diane Swindlehurst and her group of youngsters
