Jim McCarty, Illusion

Friars was a good "old fashioned" gig that hadn't changed much since the 60`s. If I remember by 1976 (Illusion gigs) there weren't many of those venues left. There were either little clubs or huge venues. Friars always had that sort of "hippie" vibe. Quite different to the punk thing happening at the time

what happened next
This line up remained intact until 1982 when Hatcher relocated back to the US. But the George Hatcher band is still going strong as at 2012
