As you will have gathered by now, the core of this issue is a big oral history exercise about music in Lewes in the ‘70s.
I’ve lost count of all the interviews we conducted and there was far too much material for us to include everything we discovered. What was most interesting was where there were contradictory accounts of the same incident and the best example of this we’ve saved for the end. Maybe readers of this piece will be able to shed further light on the matter.
If so, we’ll print a follow-up in the next issue which will be we hope in Spring 2015.
The event in question concerns a concert by the legendary blues guitarist Peter Green at Priory School in Lewes in 1971. He had left Fleetwood Mac the year before. We were first alerted to this by Pete Thomas [See p.15]
who considered that night “the most pivotal thing that happened as far as we [The Grobs] were concerned.”
