SEVENTH AVENUE

Johnny Dee & The Detours

Bolton

 

Roy Pickvance: Lead Vocal. Alan Johnson: Lead Guitar.

Graham Ainsworth: Rhythm Guitar. Steve Farrell: Bass Guitar. Jack Holt: Drums.

 

 

In 1972 Alan Johnson got back in touch and asked me to join a new project and line up, with the stage name of Seventh Avenue, after a few meetings with the Stuart Littlewood agency - we were back on the road. It was the era of big hair, big shoes, and flared pants.

 

 

  We quickly got on the Bailey club circuit, culminating with being the winners of £1000 in the Top Town Talent competition in 1974, the previous winners being Showaddywaddy, and getting an appearance on the TV show New Faces. Our line up at that time was, Roy Pickvance on lead vocals, Alan Johnson on lead guitar, Graham Ainsworth on rhythm guitar, Steve Farrell on bass guitar, and myself on drums.

 

 

 

  We had four fantastic years travelling the whole country, and also as  support act on the American singer Jack Jones’s UK tour. We were offered the chance to turn professional, but none of us wanted to give up our jobs, so we declined, and gradually became discontented doing the same circuit year in year out, and the band broke up in 1977.
