Friday night saw me and D go to Cullercoats Crescent Club to see The Wildcats play. The Wildcats are basically a band that started in Cullercoats / Whitley Bay in the late 50s early 60s. The are partly responsible for The Animals coming to fame. The Wildcats guitarist, Hilton Valentine left and joined The Animals and my Uncle, Tappy, left and became their Road Manager.
It was a brilliant night. Fantastic music that brought a smile to everyone’s faces. It was great to see so many people that I had not seen in years. I also got to spend a couple of nice hours with my dad.
D was expecting it to be a bit boring with lots of old people but was pleasantly surprised to find the night really enjoyable.
Apparently they may do another gig next year. I cant wait.
