Pete Fowler writes: "Note the 'Buddy Holly' glasses worn by Trevor Lailey - he and Martin Curtis (next but one to him in the picture) were Buddy Holly fanatics and always wore black ties to commemorate the day the music died (3 February 1959)....Lailey ended up running the UK Buddy Holly Appreciation Society; Curtis, as we know elsewhere on the site, became a legendary folk singer in New Zealand, the fabled 'bush poet'.
"George Oakenfold - and no one has been able to track him down - was a
legendary HCS 'Beat' figure, head full of Kerouac and Jazz Clubs."
