Yes Sigsy there were some great acts around...but I would keep quiet about the Whiteleas Club..my experiences of that place are rather sour ones..too many grumpy old men for a start..my joke about the WC is that Eric Clapton would get paid off a half time for being too loud.. :lol: :lol: :lol: Red R...

Yes Jimmy that's why many dads didn't want their sons to go down the mines..I know that my grandad worked there as well as Westoe and Boldon Colliery too.
