3 thoughts on “The Green Dragon Yard – 1974

  1. Thanks for your comment, Pam and Norma. I’m afraid I don’t remember The Outlook (but that’s not all I don’t remember!). Where was it? I was away at university in Newcastle when trendiness was invented and used to go to The Quay Club and The Gogo up there. There were good shows at the university too: I saw Ten Years After, Jethro Tull, The Alan Bown Set and The Nashville Teens all for about five bob. In Stockton I remember The Fiesta and was once stopped in Yarm Lane by Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits who didn’t know how to get there. Used to go to the Kirk quite a bit too. All the best!


  2. In 1974, the year this picture was taken, I had my picture taken here for an album I released that year (It’s All Right For Some). I sang professionally for ten years or so on my own, but before that did many appearances locally with various combinations of my brothers, John, Trevor and Nigel, including many at the Sun Inn, just round the corner. I have lived in Rochdale for many years now but I love to check this site. You can take the boy out of Stockton but you can’t (quite) take Stockton out of the boy!
