Karen, Lyn was a dear friend of mine. I lived at your grandmother's house in 1968. I also moved to East Dulwich and stayed with Elizabeth and Philip  during 1969. That would have to be your parents.
If so, we have met.

Jimmy Rose in South Carolina.

About ten years or so, Jimmy came to visit with me in Georgia. I was booked at the Primetime in Seneca, South Carolina, so we got to share the stage for the first time in around thirty years. What a great time we had doing all the old songs from the Country Pie days.
I love Gretsch guitars. Even the new ones made in Japan are great!! My first Gretsch was the 6120, Chet Atkins model, circa 1960. I still have it and it is still going strong. Check out the video..

I just came across the very first "South River Country", a rag reporting on the country music scene of London during the early 1970's.  Contributing writers.. Ian Franks.. editor, Mick Shepherd and Bill Neille.            
Some of the popular bands in London at that time, were "The Colin Hindmarsh Trio, The Kingpins,  The Jonny Young Four and of course, The Country Pie". It's sad that Jimmy Rose passed away in February of this year. He is missed.

Phil Brooks at the Iron Horse Saloon, Alliance, Nebraska.

During the late 70's and early 80's I performed at the Iron Horse Saloon in Alliance, Nebraska. I recently came across a video that was made of me performing there around 1981. The quality isn't so great since it was recorded on VHS, but it does show the Iron Horse during it's heyday.
