Here’s a pic of my dog looking like a depressed Herdwick.

Then rugby, injuries, pain, lots of pain.

Met up with Nige again, teamed up with his bro Adam Hope and Nick Strutt to form the original Bullfrogs. Incorporated Andy Ferguson on bass, John Bickerdike on guitar and vocals. Became Bullfrog Jones. Brought in John Dean on drums. Nige left to form Kinda Blue. Brought in Mark Tunnicliffe on fiddle and mandolin.

As a spin off, totally Dylan focussed Rob Dylan Band came about after a few Dylan Convention gigs. Same as Bullfrogs but with Pete Burns on keys and vox and Steve Isherwood on guitar.
