I went to Benidorm recently, and to my shock and pleasant surprise, I saw that ERIC DELANEY was on at one of the clubs. For those of you that don't know, Eric was a spectacular drummer/percussionist from a bygone era. I had last seen him at the Winter Gardens in Weston super Mare in 1963. He had a big band, and he performed on a revolving stage. He also introduced 'timpani' as a big band instrument. Well, there he was, at 1.30 in the morning, going bezerk on his massive kit, (still on a revolving stage), with rolls on his double bass drums etc. Still jumping off the stage to his set of four, lit up timps. AND HE IS EIGHTY - 8.....0......EIGHTY!
