LALLY STOTT - A message from Sandro Ugolini.. Lally's former drummer.. "I need a favour from you or from someone who knows where it stands Lally Stott, take him a flower by all his Italian friends."
"Lally Stott pictured middle - left his home of Prescot, Lancashire and headed off to Italy in1965 and the Black Jacks were formed - all Liverpool lads. The Motowns were formed and they featued in the Italian film 'Soldati e capelloni' in 1967. Later on he left The Motowns in 1969 and we rented a room in the center of Rome. We had it soundproofed so as not to disturb the buildings other residents. Here we started rehearsing some of The Beatles songs that he knew well and after several days of testing we went on to play many different places throughout Italy."
We also played with another singer named Glen White. In these four or five years we changed many musicians and friends of Lally's - both English and Italian; only I remained with Lally. We also did an album with lyrics. Then our dear Lally wrote Chirpy-Chirpy-Cheep-Cheep and sold a lot of records all around the world with different singer's. He later the returned to England where he died unfortunately as you know.
This is me - Sandro!

Lally was a great friend of myself and the rest of the lads in my band Jasmin-T from Liverpool. In the 70s we worked with him in Italy. We were signed to RCA and Lally penned two of our singles.
