Update on the Satellites

Remember the email from Peter Johnson who was trying to trace other memebers of his old group the Satellites?

Well we got a result.I received this from Geoff Lawson and have passed his info on to Peter.

Dear Alan
I played drums for The Satellites and remember the time we played with the Animals.
We were also playing resident at the Flamingo night club on Heaton Rd on Tuesday and Thursday.The other members of the band were Brian lead guitar Dave guitar and Dave vocals.
I was serving my time at Parsons on Shields Rd at the time and when the group turned pro I decided to finish my apprenticeship and got a job playing resident at the Westfield Club on the West Rd.I then went resident at Cleadon Club South Shields.
After this I joined the Burn William Quintet playing for the next twelve years at Killingworth Club.I now play with a local eighteen piece rehersal big band mostly retired like my self still keeping music live.If possible could you please give my Email address to Peter as I have lost contact with all of the band.I have tried to join the club but am still waiting for my details to be confirmmed by yourselves. Regards Geoff Lawson.

It's getting like bl**dy Groups Reunited in here. I am expecting a deluge of requests from the Child support Agency any day now.
