  1. My group (The Varitones)played with Chris and the Thunderbirds in Lincoln in
    1962 and the drummers' name was ? Hines........
    sorry I don't know his first name.He played a silver sparkle kit.
    Bobby Taylor had a Strat which I bought off him
    prior to this gig. He played a 335 at this gig through a Wallace amp and The Mouse played a Jazz bass (which was nearly as big as him!) also through a Wallace amp.
    Hope this is of interest.
    Regards,
    Spike Cooke.
