Yet another sad passing, I seem to remember Mike Millward died quite young about fifty years ago. A tune I liked of The Fourmost was A Little Loving written by Russel Alquist one time husband of Juliet Mills.

Yeah, the Fourmost were archetypal Merseybeat. I liked their stuff.

Although in sad circumstances , it is good that a newspaper like the Guardian,
publishes a fitting tribute to Billy Hatton, a hard working and respected musician
from Merseyside.
With regard to the RSG video clip, can anyone identify the make of Bass Guitar that
Billy is playing? Cant seem to recall seeing any other 60s bands using a Bass like this.
