RONNIE & CLIVE
Ronnie Carr of the The Beat Boys with life long pal Clive Powell -
who is perhaps better known as Georgie Fame.
"Together with a distracted June Carr, Georgie Fame & The Blue Flames played live when he was guest band on the Motown Show Tour in 1965 -1966. Here at rehearsals at the Odeon, Manchester, we met the full show parade: Smokie Robinson & The Miracles - Dianna Ross & The Supremes -Martha & The Vandellas and Stevie Wonder; and the whole squad. Now that was a night to remember. This was the tour which was poorly attended as they were not very well known then. Absolutely brilliant. I'm So glad that they all went on to the stardom they deserved."

I Saw Georgie Fame at Wigan RL Club one Sunday lunchtime. 1/6d! It wasn't a gig, he was there with Colin Clark the Wigan Rugby League player but had agreed to do a couple of numbers. He wasn't paid so the entrance fee stayed the same. He played the club's Hammond organ and the resident drummer helped out. I think it was when he had played Talk Of The North at Patricroft the previous night which was after attending a 21st birthday party in Bryn near Wigan where I went also.
