As a working musician in the 1950’s around the Birmingham area, Dennis Detheridge was a well know local music reporter, covering the local jazz scene, and visiting big band concerts, and working for the old Evening Despatch. I left the city in 1958 to pursue my own musical career, and lost track of Dennis.
I understand that, later, he was involved in both the Midland Beat & Brum Beat magazines.

My question is: Is Dennis still around, indeed even alive?!! Any information would be gratefully received.
