  1. I don't know details of the funeral arrangements yet, and I will let you know when I receive them. Tom had health problems for some time and this was one battle iam sad to say he couldn't win. I was first introduced to Tom around 1977 by Russ White, and we piled into my VW beetle along with Rob Taylor and Shaun Pawsey, on a regular basis to the Casino. He was our apprentice then, but it didn't take him long to be a time served fully paid up member. Brilliant mad days that I would not have missed for anything. I still used to bump into Tom on a regular basis, and I can honestly say he had never changed from those early casino days. Fantastic company and I will miss him greatly. Sleep well Tom and RIP
  2. Sorry to post that my old mate Tom Cooper from Doncaster sadly passed away at the weekend. Rest in peace Tom and my thoughts are with the girls at this sad time.
  3. Linda & The Funky Boys at The Casino. I promise you this cannot be beaten as the worst act ever to grace a stage. Same song sung at least 6 times
  4. No Lifeline, No Wilton, No Frobisher, No Horse & Jockey. Only Thorne & Empty Bottles. Never been as less choice to hear something different. Only now and again do you bump into the old crowd who had been into it from the early days, now a different breed have took over and it has nothing to do with the Northern scene I once knew.
  5. Search the event guide every week , All those venues-and no where worth going.
  6. So sad news. Saw amazing live acts at the Frobisher and Wilton which would never have happened without the hard work of Boxy. RIP
  7. Derby and Joan soul nights with sandwiches and birthday balloons. Same old same old, worst period ive known since 1976. Only thing to get excited about is that Empty Bottles has started up again, this is one of the few places worth travelling to.
  8. I know I shouldn't like it, and Edwins vocals are a mile better, but for production, arrangement and the total package Burdicks version comes out on top
  9. Have just seen a post on freebasing that Marks funeral is on the 20th June, at 1.45 at Rotherham Crematorium. Then its at the Joker pub at Wickersley. Lets give the lad a good send off and celebrate his life .
  10. Mark would be amazed by the comments left on here. I really don't think he had any idea how popular and loved he was. I will let you know when any date for the funeral have been made.
  11. Sad news regarding the sudden passing of Mark Ellis from Rotherham. Knew Mark for over 40 years from Samanthas and then introduced to him properly at the Windmill on a sunday night. From then on we went everywhere together- the casino, following the Wednesday home and away and holidays. He was my best man and we always kept in touch. Later on I used to see him at the 100 club , the Wilton and Lifeline. He had a photographic memory regards labels and artists and corrected me on many occasion. He was also well travelled going to parts of the world which were really unknown for vacations back in the day. He really was a gentle soul and I will miss him greatly. The last 5 years had not been a good time for Mark, and finally I hope he can find the peace he deserved. Sleep well mate
  12. The venue is perfect. Give me a good old shithole any day. Just look at the Casino, Pier, Central etc.The atmosphere is spot on, with a great knowledgeable crowd. Plenty of women there and they return time and again. We are so lucky to have this venue on our doorstep, with a chance to listen to underplayed 60,s and 70,s. Long may it continue. Shitholes rule OK
  13. Total one off. " I,am here to educate not F*****g entertain" one of my favourites when asked for a record. Saw a few DJ,S in later years trying to F & Blind whilst jocking ( James Trouble comes to mind) but nobody could hold a light to him. Really nice lad and a true character. The scene is a lot poorer without him
  14. Does nobody have the benefit of doubt anymore. Hes apologised what more do you want the bloke to do.
