Phoenix have been with us for what seems a lifetime – a band begun by a friend of Keith’s – Robin Coombs (clarinet). He was taken extremely ill a few years ago, whilst in Dubai (I think) and flown home as it happens to Biggin Hill Airport. He got better – and continued playing for a time, Then decided to retire to Devon /Cornwall and handed the band to Allan Clarke (drummer). He made a lovely job of it too – great drummer (teaches too, I believe he still does).
I shall return to add more later.
