Chris Oldham, crossfire

My name is Chris Oldham lead singer and guitarist of Wycombe band Crossfire we supported Jack the Lad on Saturday July 9th 1977 and Split Enz on Saturday 4th Feb. 1978. I remember the gigs very well

ihave very fond memories of playing with Jack The Lad, was a great gig and they let us come back on stage several times for encores. We were voted next to Marillion as best local band that year something we are still proud of to this day.  Nice to be mentioned on the friars site
