Chris Farlowe’s Blues and Soul Band perform at Hailsham Pavilion on Sunday (January 13) at 7.30pm.
Those of you who can cast your minds back to the mid sixties may well remember Chris Farlowe’s fine band the Thunderbirds which featured among others the great guitarist Albert Lee and drummer Carl Palmer (later of Emerson , Lake and Palmer fame).
However success for Chris didn’t come until a few years later when he recorded some Jagger/Richards (Rolling Stones) compositions that included “Out of Time”, undoubtedly his biggest hit single as it raced to number one.
Originally inspired by Lonnie Donegan, Farlowe’s musical career began with a skiffle group, the John Henry Skiffle Group, in 1957 before he joined the Johnny Burns Rhythm and Blues Quartet, in 1958.
He met guitarist Bob Taylor in 1959 and, through Taylor, joined the Thunderbirds, who went on to record five singles for the Columbia label. Tickets cost £19.50 from 01323 841414
