THE DELACARDOES

Rodney Day: Drums. Neil Foster: Tenor Sax.

Charles 'Cy' Richmond: Rhythm Guitar - Bass Guitar. John Day: Lead Vocal - Lead Guitar.

 

"The Delacardoes played the Catholic Institute in Liverpool every Friday night. Later we had our own club – The Cherokee which was in Bold Street – the attic is still there.

 

  1958 – 1962 was our busy time until our band leader John Day said, ‘we have gone as far as we can in ‘Liverpool’; which to him, was a bit of a dead-end place. So we all moved to London in May 1962. We didn’t find fame and fortune there but we had a great time.

 

  Cy Richmond went on to play with Jason Eddie & The Centremen. Jason was Bill Fury's brother Albert Wycherly the lead vocalist. He went further and changed his name to Al Trent.

 

 

  In 1971, I started an organisation called V.R.R.A.S – The Vintage Rock ‘n Roll Appreciation Society for the fans of the classic rock era’s of early Elvis, Little Richard, Bill Haley etc. It lasted for about ten years but lost tons of money. We also produced a magazine called ‘The Rock’ and further on we professionally printed a magazine called ‘Not Fade Away’. They were very popular mags' but they lost loads of money. I helped with other productions like the Gene Vincent and Eddie Cochrane tribute books.

 

         

 

 

  However, we did put on some large events. One such was a rock ‘n roll river cruise on the Royal Iris Mersey Ferry. The event appeared on TV and generated lots of publicity in the press. Sadly the society closed down in 1981 because of bad debts.

 

  In the 1990’s I moved to the St Helens Junction area and met Brian Bradshaw who ran a rock group called Rock The Jukebox. I joined them on saxophone and later on playing the piano.

NEIL FOSTER

In 2004 I published ‘Cradle Of Rock’ - A Merseybeat Novel.

It took me twenty years to write and twenty more years

to get it finally published, which eventually I did myself.

 

 

Very few original copies exist unfortunately. However,

I have plans to re-publish the book later this year."

 

NEIL'S JUKEBOX

 

Such was Neil Foster's love of rock 'n roll he bought a vintage Jukebox

and installed it at home in his living room. A pic from a local newspaper

where Neil - 2nd left show's off his prize possession to Edward 'Rock',

Alan Wilson and Margaret & Neil Thompson."

 

Neil Foster: March 2011
