The Chalet Club, near the Lickey Hills,
was a popular venue, and a ‘trip’ to the country
for us townies.
The club featured many of the popular Brum Beat bands,
like Idle Race, The Uglys

One such night I went along to see Idle Race,
and spent a long time chatting to Jeff Lynne.
Who was to know then, that Jeff was to join
the super group ELO!

Happy times near the bluebells of The Lickies!
