Go back to the Home Page - there are the links. It's all worth looking at. 'The Gallery' link will take you to some photos that have been sent in (a couple of mine are there).
Check Paul Griggs Lonnie 'recollections' pages, too - some great stuff there! The discography is another informative source.
Despite the great music - some of those early LD sides are among the most powerful pop-recordings ever - I wonder how much influence he would have had he not been possessed of that irresistible personality of his? I'm pretty sure that we all were drawn in by that charisma above all. How else could he have 'sold' us such esoteric and previously-inaccessible music that, on the face of it, was a long way from being potentially commercial material.
Looking back from fifty years later, I still find that remarkable. 'Railroad Bill', 'I'm Alabammy Bound', 'Bring A Little Water, Sylvy' - it's a far cry from Justin Timberlake, isn't it?
PS: I was a founder-member of the 'Heroes' many years ago. I've known Brian for fifty years - he and my brother were in the same class at school. See my other post re: Albert....
