I was searching for any information on "Vintage" and the article by Alan Jackson came up.
I was the frontman with Vintage for a time in the late 70's when we had Jet Harris on board. I was Cliff, we were very busy at this time, under the guidence of Dick Clarke, we travelled the length and bredth of the UK and we had a good following. It was my songwriting that gave us an extra boost allowing us to get publicity through many a radio interview.
Unfortunately one night something was said at a big gig in Sunderland and caused by Jet. I got in the car and drove home. I have lots of regrets although my career continued as a solo act, doing a Cliff tribute show
before we had heard of the term!!
I never saw or spoke to the guys again. I would like to make contact with Alan, Graham and Brian.
I live in Catalonia now and have a radio show plus a band here and A SHADOWS BAND in Scotland "The Delsonics.
Keith Shepherd also played in Vintage on bass and has a bass that belonged to Jet Harris.
