My Old Man





 These pics are courtesy of Dave Lane, saxophonist of the Ramblers. He got in touch via the Youtube clip that I uploaded. The top 2 (My Dad is on the far right of the first shot) pics are from their tour in Hamburg, where they played venues such as the Top Ten Club. Apparently, you played an hour on and hour off for pretty much 18/20 hours per day... This would have been around 1962/63 , shortly after The Beatles played there.  I'm guessing the third shot will be around 1963 (50 years go) probably in London somewhere and yep, those are pre-CBS red Fender Stratocasters .
