Subject: RE: Early Lonnie Recording
Chris & Lonnie separately always told it as "artistic differences" leading to the whole band "sacking" Ken, the leader, in effect by going off together & recruiting Pat H. Pat who had a steady day job was reluctant to give it up, worried the band might not last! Incidentally, the partnership between Chris & Pat must be unique in UK trad bands with their ever-changing personnel. Saw CB band last year & Pat still blowing well. Monty S was in the audience: not playing now, retired through ill-health.
Depressing to realise all the trad band musicians I've been following since the '50s are either dead or over 70!
