  1. Very interesting Paul. I didn’t know you worked with the Dundonian band, The Average White Band. When I was managing the Royal Hotel in Dundee, Atlantic Records booked my hotel for the funeral wake of the drummer that died. They booked for thirty people, but after the funeral the hotel was swamped by over 300 fans. A hasty phone call to the US and Atlantic Records approved a free bar for everyone – we took in a fortune that day! Later that month, the band decided to play a free gig in the Royal Hotel, to say thank you to their Dundonian fans, what a night that was!

    1. Good stuff, Keith. I didn’t actually work with the Average White Band but their offshoot, Glencoe. Glencoe didn’t make it big but, as you know, the AWB became enormous. Very good they were too.
