Hi Des, Stumbled on your site by accident, while looking for a pic of Mike Sarne. Remember Me ? I was the manager of the Vic Club in Clayton Le Moors. About 1967. You Don & Jim became our resident band. Backing some great acts. Including Karl Denver & Eddie Calvert. I remember you bringing the house down with your version of Whiter Shade Of Pale. And I was always asking you to do Buddy Holly's Peggy Sue. Then we moved to the Towngate Club at Great Harwood about 1969. More great acts. We had some great times. Hope you are keeping well. Regards Alan

Hi there. I stumbled across one of your videos on you tube (where do you go to my lovely)and enjoyed your version and left comment. I checked a few others and ended up here :D. I really had no idea about your life in music. Im into a very different genre but I like certain songs as I assume you do with some of your selected covers. Just kinda touched by your life and your enthusiasm for music in what you have posted on the net. You seem a genuine nice guy. I,ll always check for new posts on you tube. Paul, Scotland And yes its freezing

Hi Des, I am caught in neutral here. I am reading about what an exciting life you have led. Question: How far is Preston from Chester,Cheshire, U.K.? I sent your site to my friend, Dizzy who is from there. He is on esnips, too. See you there. Rosie

Just did a search on the net for The Puppets as I was re-living some old memories. I remember, very well, travelling in a van with you guys from Glasgow, Scotland after we had done a show with Joe Brown and Vince Eager. We travelled to Dave's home in Preston (I think it was Dave's home) we had a bacon sandwich and then you guys were kind enough to drop Joe Brown's gear off in Yarmouth! I was working with Joe at the time - but he wasn't too happy with me as I accidentally let some stink bombs off backstage!! Some time later my mother made you all some food in Hartlepool just before you played at The Rink! Oh, happy days!!

What a fantastic read! You have brought back many happy memories of those golden days of the 60's. As you say Bob Johnson was fabulous but David John and the Mood were my favourites of the time and I still have their records here at home, their version of Bring It To Jerome is one of the best records of all time in my opinion. I also have The Puppets records still but you miss out what I thought was the biggest 'hit' Juliet or is my memory failing here? The Catacombs was a fantastic place I don't think there has been a place like it in Preston ever since. Thanks for being a part of Preston's music in what was truly a great time and thanks too for the website and the memories.

Hi Des, I had to send you an email to let you know that my 5yr old twins(boy and girl) absolutely love to see yr 'Little White Bull' video on Youtube. We play it several times a week and they prefer it to the original Tommy Steel clip also posted there. My children first heard 'Little White Bull' on Radio 2, played by Steve Wright in the spring this year and that is how we came to the youtube site to see if it was on there. The twins love the song and often ask for 'Desdinga'. What a great song. Many Thanks, Julia

G'Day Fergus,In answer to your question,we didn't have to as far as I can recall it must have been released after we worked for him,I asked Jim the bass player of The Puppets and he couldn't remember the song either.We were with Crispian from late Jan through till the end of the Summer Season in Gt Yarmouth,in 1966.Please contact me on [email protected] if you need any other info .Thanks Fergus~~Des

yo desi how are you doin', I last saw you following a concert walthamstow or east ham granada, where The Puppets were the House band [and bloody good you were]. you kindly invited me to the show, and gave me a lift back to the tube, after dropping Gene and his girlfriend. Remember Falconberg Mews [Spring of 1963] anyway Desi just a quick hello from me, and I hope you are taking care of yourself' Apart from ''Bobby Sox and the Blue Jeans'' I always thought that your vocals on Zippa de doo dah are still the best I've ever heard.
