    Hey Dogen, was it the Paiste (cymbals) drum clinic at A1 music on Oxford Street? I'm guessing it was about 1982. Hiseman, Powell and the guy who drummed for 10CC (Paul Burgess).

    Did you ever make it to Eel Pie Island, Twickenham? I heard it was a boathouse?

    Or Teddington Studios for a recording of Ready, Steady, Go?

    Grew up in Teddington aa few years later and was amazed these events had happend so close, right in the middle of suburbia. Not to mention going to school via Ealing Broadway station where Alixis Corner and The Rolling Stones started in a basement right opposite. Later I moved to the East End, near where Peter Green was born. Still amazed how the blues inspired those kids to go out and conquer the world.
    Yes, it was indeed the Crawdaddy, aka Richmond Rugby Club's Clubhouse. We started going shortly after the Yardbirds had taken over the Sunday evenings there from the Rolling Stones. You would have the back of your hand stamped to prove you'd paid and it was a point of honour to wash around it very carefully so it was still visible when you went to school the next day!

    I lived in Heston, so Richmond was relatively easy to reach by public transport, although my longsuffering Dad had to turn out and collect us several times when we missed the last bus home. I knew of Eel Pie Island, but never went to any gigs there, I think there were too many other places that were closer and easier to reach by bus. Pocket money, even with a Saturday job, was tight, which also limited how often we went out.

    I seem to remember one friend being a regular at Hounslow Baths, which had regular music events back in the 60s!

    I don't know why, but I don't remember any of us being interested in going to see "Ready, Steady, Go", although we all watched it on television.
