|THE HOLLYWOOD FESTIVAL.
May 23rd and 24th 1970.
wanted to drop you a note to say that i loved finding your page incorporating
the Wildmouth picture . It happens that the bass player (Gordon
Shaw, 2nd from left in the picture posted) was my stepfather and I recall
going to several gigs back in the old days, although i was very young.
The photo you posted suddenly made me recall several of the band member
names; Joe on vocals, and Dirty Mick who I think was the drummer (right
in the picture).
line-up on the photo from left to right is Roland Kemp, rhythm guitar,
Gordon Shaw, bass guitar, Jo Hanson (Parton for the last 32 year and
still singing!) vocals, Bob Ward, lead guitar and Roland Roberts, drums.
more info regarding Mike Cooper and Titus Groan's performances on their own pages- see menu below.

We have been endeavoring to collect audience or sbd tapes of the performances at this festival , so we can effectively review the performances, provide set lists and band line-ups. The intention is to also display as many personal histories of the festival as possible.
