Early years/Elastic Band
The Elastic Band rose phoenix-like from the ashes of The Silverstone Set. As mentioned elsewhere, the night we played support for The Jimi Hendrix Experience in Manchester was a life changing moment for myself and Ted Yeadon. In May 1967, The Silverstone Set were booked for a tour of Portugal but due to the fact that the band had already split, this effectively provided The Elastic Band's debut. Whatever was lacking in rehearsals was certainly camouflaged by enthusiasm. We were finally on our way. Everything stepped up a level. We were gigging constantly all over the UK, TV appearances and a record deal! There is much archive material from this period - enjoy.
