 Mick Lister, The Truth

Hello everyone, Friars .. well I think I must have spent most of my teenage years there!!. Thinking about it now we were so lucky to have a local gig that supplied the wealth of premium artistes/ bands to our town. Can't think of anywhere in the world this could have happened and have fond memories of being 16 and whenever a support band pulled out (my first ever band The Stowaways) would get a call from Dave Stopps to see if we would play (which of course we did!!) I also feel very lucky to have been one of the very few local musicians to follow their dream of headlining Friars in 1983 with The Truth (Formed out of Nine Below Zero),
Fond Memories indeed.
