In mid 64 the band went through some changes, Brian Cooper and Ian McBrearty moved on and Alan joined us  on bass.

We decided at that point to change the name of the band to STAGE 4 and took on a new manager Paul Hartley, known to his friends as Peas.  We carried on with this format until late 66 when I left the band to move to Blackpool and join a local group  Groveyard.
