  1. The loss of anyone you have known for many years is hard. But when it is sudden and unexpected it is particularly difficult to take in. Waking up this morning to hear that Stafford stalwart Mick Howard has passed is a shock. Known to so many of us as a passionate soulman and honorary Scot with a lust for life, his passing will be hurtful to all that knew him. My thoughts are with the family and his many close friends around the UK.There were many that came to Stafford, but a few that contributed with their strong support and belief in the venue and music we played, something he continued to do for many years after it finished. People like Mick are as much part of the legend as any of us. He is of a generation that should not be leaving us yet, this is a sad day.................. Mick Always in our hearts, from a time when we were all together and young and foolish, sleep well Mate...............
  2. One of his earliest recordings, a Doo Wop classic, he was around so long
  3. I join with many today to mourn the passing of Timothy Wilson R.I.P. Timothy heralded from Salsbury,Maryland. Born in 1943 in his early career he was a member of The Five Hits & A Miss, Tiny Tim & The Hits and then The Serenaders, alongside George Kerr and Sidney Barnes appearing on Motown. Later as a solo artists he recorded for a number labels including Veep, United Artists, Buddah, Blue Rock and Sky Disc. Although not being well known outside soul appreciating circles, this doesn't take anything away from his talents as a singer and his distinctive voice. Best known for his 60's recordings, still this late 78 recording demonstrates the lasting quality of the man and his beautiful voice https://youtu.be/12yxh6yZ68s
