Excellent Story Stu.
I went to seen the Seahorses in 97, It was one of my/our most anticipated concerts of the time, So disappointed..So disappointed. Don't know what the hell Squire was attempting at that time?. Chris Helme however was the best part of the band I thought.
Maybe they should have had you on drums then too. You never know what might have been. As they say, without Reni, the Stone Roses would never have been.

Kevin.
Yeah, i never thought that much about The Seahorses either but preferred them to Shed Seven (not hard). Reni was rather good. John Squire and Chris Helme fell out about the music i think. I remember a couple of scouts about in York looking for the Seahorses drummer but they wanted one who could do backing vocals and i dont sing. All the members ended up being from York except Squire and i knew them all except the drummer.

John Squire found Chris Helme busking on the streets of York and Stuart Fletcher (bass player) was recruited after being seen playing a gig in York. I remember there being a lot of jealousy from some of the musicians who got passed up. Not me though, i only hang around with musicians :lol:

My 15 mins of fame was actually about 30 secs and extended to my band being named in a poll of the Top Ten Worst Band Names in the SU magazine of Middlesex Polytechnic. Granted some of our early offerings were of the kind most generously described as 'juvenilia' but ultimately Lord Lucan and the Lookalikes had quite an enthusiastic following for a few, brief years back in mid-80's Colchester. :)

Thanks, Andy. Yes, we thought it was quite an improvement from our original Cheddar Cheese and the Chunkies!

I now have the guts to let you lot see this video of me playing drums from summer just gone. It is Moby Dick (kind of) and about 9 mins long. A bit boring for those who don't like drum solo's. Anyway, its nothing like Bonham@s exploits although i can do a few triplets. My daughter makes an appearance showing her knickers near the end.

Enjoy (or not).

Cheers Wii. Top sausage :grin:

That was back in May. We were hassled in to getting an old band back together for a village festival. My first gig in 8 years since children came along. We had about 8 rehearsals and after the gig decided to get the band back together permanently. Got very drunk that day as we got paid in free beer :guiness; :guiness; :guiness;

I only played moby dick cos we didn't have enough songs. It seems to go down ok so has remained in the set although not as long as 9 mins.....
