Malc McKinder who I knew arranged bands for the FAG. His brother (another mate) was Paul who I believe died. Walt 'the Sherriff' sadly died too of heroin I am told. I haven't seen daffy since 1974 but he didn't make any sense and was convinced that he was from Venus and was sent here to earth on a mission. I guess he might have got his head together later. Axcroft, Is Ray actually Raymond Greenough? I worked with Ray when I began work as a 15 year old in 1969. He took me to his house and introduced me to 'White Room' by Cream - that got me hooked. Ray and I set up an artist studio in his parents' spare room. I had a bad injury and was off work a while but Ray got me to churn out the art and was good at selling it. I think he went into photography and made a career of it. That band with if I remember (I tagged along and contributed a bit) was Ray, Walt, Daffy... and a guy called Alan (drummer) whose surname I can't remember. He married Doris Eccleston who lived near Ray.
All these guys were into seriously good music and regular attendees at the Wigan venues.
