51 Years Ago Today

                                                                     Nine acts in two hours! 

Back in the summer of 1963, given the choice between nipping just around the corner to catch The Big 'O', The Fabs and Gerry & his mates at the local fleapit, or heading off to Southend-on-Sea to work on my inflatable ball balancing routine....well, it would've been no contest really.


Mind you, if someone had told me about Erkey Grant (& the Earwigs), I'd like to think that my answer might've been quite different.

First of all, it must be pointed out that your beach ball balancing technique is exquisite. The dedication to your craft is obvious and the requisite sacrifices were not in vain.

Besides, you surely scored chicks with that move.

Secondly...Erkey Grant is awesome. Thanks for that one.

Digging the fashion sense you had back then.

Erkey Grant? This is hip.

Yes, loving Erkey!

I'm with Erik and SB re both the technique and the fashion sense. Superb.

I love the way the poster mentions two Beatles song titles to help remind us who they are... really puts it into context!
