Think this has been mentioned before but in a documentary about Lou Reed's Transformer Herbie Flowers said he did the original bass line for Walk on the Wild Side on an upright bass then offered to overdub it on electric bass because he knew he'd earn an extra 12 for the session. The drummer on Transformer was John Halsey who was Barry Wom in The Rutles.

In the 60s there was a club in Woodgrange Road, Forest Gate called The Upper Cut, owned by the boxer Billy Walker. It was opened by The Who (Otis Redding also played there). On Boxing Day 1966 Jimi Hendrix wrote Purple Haze while waiting to go on stage there - tickets for the gig were 4/-.

If only it was true that Bob Holness had played the sax on Baker Street.

I believe he was the very first James Bond. Was the voice on a radio play in South Africa.
