Graeme Taylor, Gryphon

On June 8th 1973, at Stone Parish Church, Martin Lewis took a photograph of us in the churchyard, prior to which I hung my rather dull grey jacket over a gravestone, the weather being fair.  Subsequent to that, I was forever to him (aka) Gravely Headstone

Editor's note -   Martin Lewis was Gryphon's publicist at Transatlantic Records and was responsible for breaking the band in the first place...

Dave Oberle, Gryphon

Yes... I do remember the gig although it's all rather fuzzy now!!
