I am the proud owner of Charlie Sidebottom's drum kit . Drummer with Deke Bonner and the Tremors. I got the kit from his son Gary and spent a long time restoring it. Unfortunately we don't have any pictures of Charlie playing it during the 60's. I believe pictures were taken of Deke Bonner and the Tremors playing 'The Cavern'many years ago.

In reply to Keith Halson -
My parents were both in the band Fairfield Welles and it was a lovely surprise to see them mentioned on this site - I will be directing them here as I am sure it will bring back fantastic memories for them.
