Well it was about time! Well done lads.

Congratulations on this.I am so chuffed to read this news! It's the mother of all memories. A huge well done chaps!!

The Beatcombers? Are you THE BEATCOMBERS from Scotland? If so, I bought a brilliant Beatle-esque CD of yours in Edinburgh many, many years ago.

the very same Greg!

George, glad for the correspondence. Tony from The Shakers says hi, too. Says you played at Atombeat together.

And what a good night that was Greg!....can you pass my regards to Tony?

George, I believe Tony is a regular RAG! reader, so I think it's a done deal.

I Used to be in a band called O'Haras PLayboys,with colin pryce jones, I have lost his address, could you furnish me with his e-mail or telephone no,or address, as I would like to return a xmas card. thankyou

John-Colin doesn't have a computer or any such gadgets hehe-if you link to my Facebook or Myspace page, I'll message Col's address through that avenue-Incidentally, Greg-John's band were one of the hottest live acts of the 60's/70s etc-and certainly included Colin in the line up for quite some time. I had the pleasure to meet John when we toured with the Bootleg Beatles some years back and Colin and John were having a great time recalling those halcyon days! Check out the clips of O'Hara's playboys on youtube-barnstormin' stuff-Especially their version of the Beatles B Side "I'm Down"!

Dear All,

In the sixties I new a band from Dagenham Essex called the Rapiers.
Steve Webb and Barry Johnson were two of the members and the three guitarists all played Rapier guitars-hence the name. Does anyone now if this current band is an evolution of the original ?

Regards
Len Rowney

Hello Len

Are you still playing the guitar Len? I hope you are, you were a rare talent.

Best Wishes.

Paul Cole

I used to live next door to Steven Webb and my mum used to moan about the practice nights but I didn't mind
