July 14 Cloister Gardens Day Performance. This was Brian's last gig. I was sad to see him go as well. He's a brilliant guitarist and George and Brian made a powerful pair. In an ad in Kempster's Music Shop in Swindon, Tony Jordan was looking for a band and eventually he joined the Doobs.

May 11 Link Centre, Swindon, foe REACH organised by Sheila Pregnal on her birthday.

April 22, Welsh Harp, Gloucester

About this time George Symington had to leave the area to follow his employment. He was a skilled bass player and backing vocalist and I was sorry to see him go. Finding a replacement was not easy and the bassist who could not rehearse most evenings due to his community service and could not attend when it rained as his old jeep lacked a windscreen wiper motor, had to be rejected. Fortunately, Roger Smith joined the band on bass and has been with us ever since.
