    Do You Recognise Anyone

    How bizarre and sad that this should come to light now - Just found out that Lyndel Walsh aka Spin passed away last week. It is indeed Mick Scott in the picture - he and Spin were huge friends in the late 70's/early 80's. God Bless and KTF. x

    Yes I remember Ian (Irish was his 'stage name') went out with my friend Terri Beighton for a while - remember Kev Mason too and Smiler !! Lots of happy memories from the club nites and then straight into the nighters (and then later up to the KGB when that first started. ) Remeber Brian Johnson ? Appeared out of nowhere with his cocky trilby hat and was 'hardcore' soul from day one - lovely chap.

    [quote name='mick5712' date='07 November 2009 - 12:09 AM'] Just another thought, what about the nights in the Central at Leeds [/quote] Blimey - had forgotten about these !! Yes - Great nights - Central, port Cullis, Brickyard - Windmill -- Best days of my life too :-) Thanks for posting
  7. .. and this is exactly why I didnt post my opinion earlier - cos I didnt particulary want to get dragged into the bun fight. No I dont think people should stand by and watch their mates be stabbed in the back - IF that is definately what has been done, but from what I hear the people who have taken over now are not the people who were initially going to do it and have only stepped in because people who are still willing to attend the Empress (obviously people other than the members who have posted supporting items on here ) have asked them repeatedly to do so. I think what a lot of us forget (or might not even want to face ) is that so long as the DJ's are the ones they like, playing the music they like, 9 out of 10 punters would not even know - let alone care- who the promotors are. Sorry if this sounds patronising - it;s not meant to - a few of you know me from old and will probably be surprised I can even spell that let alone get dragged into this argument.

    ha ha - Hi Darren - and wasn't I just ??????
  9. Take care, be safe & remember," You pays your money, you makes your choice", Spot. As already stated on this thread - you pay your money and you make your choice - I'm sure there are more than enough people in and around Yorkshire to fill both places and I hope both venues have successful nights. As a long ago past 'attendee' of The Empress Rooms i have followed the recent events with interest and have arrived at the assumption that there are two sides to every story - one of which has been very publicly aired on these pages - and I'm sure things weren't as straight forward as they appear nor as contrived as people seem to think, but putting all that aside - come on guys - this is the soul scene and in my day we were about sticking togther and having a good time - not slagging each other off . You should be grateful that you have the choice of two good venues to go to.

    Jr Walker At Wigan

    Yes - that would be about right - I saw him there around that time too and was lucky enough to blow his sax !! (now now !!) went with Martin Stanley if my memory serves me right :-)
