It's not Stan.....it's Trevor 'ET Rockers' Evans' - see the other clearer shot where he is on keyboards. Great shot of Neville guesting and also of the People featuring Charley Anderson and Desmond Brown. Brilliant stuff!


is that Lynval standing beside Charley Anderson ?

yes definitely Neville there in the white top - 21 Guns were one of the bands he managed. He signed them to his 'Shack' record label. Both Trevor and Rex (Specials' road crew and Neville's closest friends) were in the band.

No that's Chris Chistie, guitarist with the People.

Thanks Smile

Showing The People and 21 Guns on the same page makes things a little confusing and the poor lighting doesn't help. and I haven't seen many pictures of the aforementioned bands.

Here's Team 23 another great Coventry band shame they didn't stay around long enough to record an Album.

It's great to see so many new photo's of Gus Chambers in there, he is sorely missed on the Cov music scene, and indeed as with Grip Inc, some parts of the World too
