I wonder if anyone knows what became of Brian Jones, who was a long standing roadie for the band and I think Bev Bevan's drum tech, right through to the end. Brian used to live just down the road from me in Birmingham (with his mum) and along with several other ELO roadies used to drink in my dad's local pub (he knew them quite well and got quite a few bits of ELO merchandise for me from them). I would often see him in the 80's driving around in his blue Range Rover and Bev mentions him several times in 'The ELO Story' including one hilariously drunken encounter with a dominatrix!
He'd be getting on a bit now, I assume, probably around the same age as Bev or Jeff but would be interesting to know what happened to him?
Cheers thanks, I live in Sutton Coldfield and so was interested if it was anywhere nearby.
Ha, not quite so posh! Bev Bevan and Jasper Carrot (or Bobby Davies as he was then) were both born and brought up fairly close by and went to what was then, Moseley Grammar School. I think Richard Tandy was also fairly local too.

Horacewimp: We are all good thanks, just wishing I could go on a foreign holiday, it’s just not worth the risk with Covid and the possibility of a 14 day quarantine, we may do some short breaks in the U.K.
