It was sad to see that we lost some music icons that I grew up listening to, I was a great fan of the Everly Brothers and with the death of Don that dynasty of the perfect harmonisation of voices has gone,
Then there was the in my opinion the greatest drummer of all time Charlie Watts (Rolling Stones) in my youth I had aspirations to become a drummer but unfortunately my hand coordination left a lot to be desired so in my Butlin Redcoat days I stuck to compering shows with the odd comedy routine.
I was discussing the longevity of the Rolling Stones with a friend the other day and said I would have loved to have seen the Stones play Oxford Town Hall in the sixties (sadly I was only 12 years old and still living in the East End) and he said that the group had never played Oxford Town Hall so I produced a ticket from Saturday January 4th 1964 that cost 9/6d what would that equate to today?
. Charlie Watts had only just joined the Stones following the death of Brian Jones, I attach a photo of the ticket.
