The guy on the left be like: "Heyyy, this band's pretty good!"

Also, is that a 16" ride cymbal, or did someone put JHB's in the dryer?

I would bet this is around 75 after they left the UK as tax exiles. I remember something about them staying in the Channel Islands briefly before moving on.

There’s a story about them jamming with house band equipment at the club near the property they we’re staying at. Maybe that’s where it’s from.
