'Hi Lynne, Great to make contact and yes it was a terrific re-union with Dave. The past has been returning at a rate .. Chris Brown (ex Unknown Blues, Ayer's Rock) .. Chris Brown'
'Hi Lynne, I am Dave Rowlands, the drummer for The Unknown Blues. I love your blog. Glad we get a mention! Phil Jones lives in the U.S. expensive. I live in Brisbane now and was down in Sydney on holidays late last year. I caught up with some friends I had not seen for forty years. Some great memories came flooding back and yes, they used to go to Beethovens too. Dave Rowlands'
I took my 8 year old son around to see the Rhubarbs (now a Spanish restaurant) and the Beethovens (who knows?) buildings. If only the walls could talk! There were some pretty wild things happening in those days and I had my share too! You have recorded a time that was truly a period of massive social change. We were all able to go out and have a good time without fear and knowing our mates would look after us if there was trouble. To top it off there was some pretty good music to dance to too. I would love to get our band back together for a reunion but there are a couple of hurdles in my way.
