I first met the Equals way back in the early 1980's. We had the samemanagement company so I often use to see Pat Lloyd
in the office. I remember sitting in on some recording sessions with the guys and there was great excitement when 'Funky
Like A Train' enjoyed a shock visit to the charts.
At one point I was invited to join the Equals. I was very keen to accept but my manager blocked it. He wanted me to concentrate
on songwriting and recording.
Later on when I was rehearsing with the Kinks in 1989 I used to stay at Pat's pub over in Hackney Wick
Eventually I received a second invitation to join the Equals in October 2018. This time around I didn't hesitate. So
far, so good. As you can see, they're a great bunch of guys, very supportive and still very popular..
