Amazing Blondel Quotes
This name for the band was suggested by a chef called Eugene McCoy who listened to some of their songs and commented: "Oh, very Blondel!" and we began to use that name.
I got my first guitar when I was 9 and was influenced by Hank Marvin and the Shadows and the rock and roll that was coming from the States, the Everly Brothers that kind of thing. I plonked around on the guitar a bit but 1 didn't real/v take it seriously until I was 18 or 19.
We met up a few times and then later on John got in touch and asked me to join Amazing Blondel. Terry said "We had better have you on our side rather than against us". I then had to tell Shab that our partnership was over and I was becoming a full time musician. He didn't really mind because he was busy working for British Rail. By this time John and Terry had finished recording and so I joined Blondel within weeks of them finishing the first album.
