13 April 1942
John attended Inny with Macca and was asked in Feb 1958 to join the band as he played the piano. He later joined Ricky Tomlinson in Hobo Rick & the City Slickers ! - he kept the record and sold it after 20+ years t Macca for a rumoured £12K
83 Vale Road (marked in red) also went to Mosspit Lane, Dovedale infants/ primary and same class at Quarry Bank as John. Sadly Pete died in 2017 at his home in Knutsford, but remained friends all his life. John wanted Pete in his group, so he played washboard.
Another Quarry Bank pupil, Eric joined when it was found out he playedguitar.
24 vale road (vega)now 84 (marked in green) attended Dovedale Infants/Primary then Liverpool Institute where he got to know Macca, whose birthday he shared. Nigel and Ivan shared duties on Tea Chest Bass.
Leosdene 88 Vale Road (marked in blue) went to Mosspit lane infant/juniors, the to Bluecoat school.
Briefly attended Mosspit Lane Primary for something like 8 months, then Mimi decided he attend Dovedale Infants from May 1946. 1948 he moved up to Juniors then to Quarry Bank in Sept 52. He befriended Nigel at 5 years old.
Rod was at Quarry Bank in th 'A' stream and joined the others on banjo
Eric knew someody who played drums and introduced them to Colin. I recommend you take a look at his book -it's a good read -
Len took over the reins from Bill, Ivan or Nigel by being the new Tea chest player.
.....so where are they now ?
Sadly, 'some are dead and some are living'
