The Early Days Of Bakerloo Blues-Line 1967-1969

The Early Days Of Bakerloo Blues-Line 1967-1969

I passed the eleven plus in 1960 and attended Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School Tamworth Staffordshire.

1965 I went into further education at Sutton Coldfield School of Art and Nottingham College of Art & Design becoming a graphic artist.

I funded my further education with summer jobs and playing gigs in and around Birmingham.

At 17 I met Dave " Clem " Clemson a fantastic child prodigy pianist who discovered the guitar in his early teens and set about mimicking Jimmy Hendrix and Eric Clapton with tremendous dexterity.

We ended up forming an " underground " blues band that we agreed to call Bakerloo Blues Line( my advertising skills from art college being put to some use! )

As a trio we had a succession of drummers all became outstanding players at some point during their careers. ( some already were when they kindly agreed to put up with me and Dave.)
