Glad to be here!
Hi, My name's Dave and I joined because although I always liked the Beatles I was intrigued by a poster calling himself or herself, Rikki Redstreak! There was a band in the States calling themselves Rikki and the Redstreaks, so I wrote to ask the lead guitarist when and how they got their name. The fellah e.mailed me back saying they took the name from an interview that Paul McCartney had done with a big mag in 1971 or thereabouts! He asked why I was interested and I said 'cos I was the original lead guitarist with Rikki and the Redstreaks back from 1959 till around 1963. We used to play most weeks on the same stage as the Beatles and it was brilliant to be able to stand about six feet from them and watch just Paul and George do the likes of 'Somewhere over the Rainbow' or 'Wooden Heart' with George sitting on a beer crate, and Paul playing a six string ordinary guitar! Happy days! Dave
