As a local Lancashire group the Avalons managed to generate local press coverage at a time when anybody playing a guitar was popular – and East Lancashire was full of good groups.

But we never made it into the national press – apart from an article in Q magazine explaining why we broke up, of which, in hindsight, the less said the better.

But journalist Richard Houghton has published a book: The Who – I was there, about fans’ and groups’ experiences over the years.

He’d spotted my blog post on when we played with them and asked if it could be included in the book. Of course, why not?

So here is his book and here is part of our story about supporting one of the best rock bands in the world here in East Lancashire back in May 1965.
