Bungy's Beat Club

"Here is a copy of my 'Bungy's Beat Club' Membership Card.   You'll see, from the back of the card, why I kept it!"

Gene Vincent

"I was in London on a course in December 1964, staying at the Russell Hotel.  On our very first night, I spotted Gene Vincent sitting in the Lounge Bar, dressed all in black leather with gammy leg (motorbike accident) stretched out in front of him. He was with a very nice 60s 'chick' dressed all in white leather. Anyway, he was very happy to autograph my Bungy's Card.

The Gamp and The Place

"I wasn't too keen on Bungy's.  When I discovered The Gamp, I never went back to Bungy's.

We all went to The Place as well, but it was just a bit too frantic there. I remember the condensation pouring down the walls on a Saturday night. Saw Jimmy James and the Vagabonds there.

Gamp was smaller, more intimate and much friendlier. I even went there on my own, a couple of times.  I would never have done that at The Place!

Bands

"My favourite bands were:

Screaming Citizens

Athenians

Avengers  (Kenny Charleson was in my class at school.)

Ian McCalman of The McCalmans was also in my class at school."
