Many thanks for posting my memories !
I am interested in Andy's comment about Lynn Darnton and Tribe of the Sacred Mushroom. I am thinking maybe it was Lynn Darnton I met - I do remember the 'Sacred Mushroom' connection. Also, Lynn Darnton did some posters for the Third Ear Band. So, it is possible I have confused him with Lyn Dobson, as Lyn Dobson played with Third Ear Band. The Lynn I met, I didn't know as a musician at the time, but did know as being connected with the Tribe of the Sacred Mushroom. I think it's not likely they are the same person, but it would be interesting if they were!! Also, the name 'Lynn Darnton' stirs something in my memory. Hopefully Lyn Dobson can clear it up! And, apologies to him if he never was at 101,or a friend of Pam! The more I think about it, the more I am sure it was Lynn Darnton I met. Oh well, there is still a TEB connection there!
By the way, I was reading the blog, and I came upon the name of Dick Dadem, the trombone player who played at one time with the Third Ear Band. I definitely did know Dick, not in London, but in Glastonbury. He lived with a lady called Joyce Chapman, a lovely eccentric person who I knew well. They lived in a caravan in Glastonbury, and I would visit them often, sitting in their caravan, smoking and talking for hours on end. Dick was very conventional in his appearance, compared to most of us, and Joyce looked more like a hippie than most of us, so they made an odd couple! He was playing his trombone then, and I believe he was playing in either an orchestra or a brass band locally. A very nice guy, friendly to me and good to talk to.The last I saw of Joyce, she was living in the Old Police House in Coxley, near Glastonbury, with her children.This would be early 70s. I wonder what happened to her, and if anyone else remembers Joyce? I don't know what happened to Dick, sadly, and had more or less lost him from my memory until I saw his name there. It brought back some good feelings for me!
About Dick Dadem... apparently no tracks around...]
