Fame at last! This week Zoot was the answer to a question on Ken Bruce’s Pop Master quiz on BBC Radio 2. But what was the question??
In other radio news, there’s a full 90-minute interview with radio host Philip Silverstone on Tune In Radio, including a cracking selection of tunes. Download the free TuneIn Radio app for phones and tablets and search: Phillip Silverstone or visit online http://bit.ly/1gY2Ht4
Eagle-eyed Rollers might have noticed the comings and goings on our gigs page of a night at Chelmsford City Football Club. Following a series of adjustments it can now be confirmed this will take place on SATURDAY THE TWENTY-EIGHTH OF JULY. Any other date you have in your diary for this is WRONG. Come on July 28th however and we will all be there at the same time, which I’m sure you will agree is the better way.
Get booking early to avoid disappointment (click on the flyer for ticket link) and see you there!

Zoot was recently interviewed for Isle Of Wight Radio, where he talked to interviewer John Hannam about his long career in music, his spell as a television actor, his friendship with Jimi Hendrix and his new 90 track four CD box set, called Big Time Operator. Zoot is on top form with some great stories; you can watch the whole thing here:

Miss you so much already Nick ‘Noola’ Newall.
This one’s hard.
My many instrument talented tenor player and wise dignified friend of 60 yrs has passed into the ether last night.
Never a cross word or wrong note passed his lips in all the time we spent together, in vans, cars, buses, planes and smelly band rooms in all the towns we played.
The longest standing member of the Roll Band (Big or little) he always contributed more than his recompense.
His class continues to show in that he requested no funeral so all I can do to indicate my respect is to recommend you listen to the countless impeccable solos he provided on my and many others’ recordings.
Warm heartfelt memories of great intelligent humour to his dear Marilyn and their son that will no doubt carry them through this painful time. His quiet voice and laugh are with us still.

Get booking now, because Thursday 26th of October …yes THIS month… Big Roll will be rolling into the Bulls Head, Barnes.
We will remember the late Nick Newall: replacing him on tenor will be the very able Nick Payne.
A celebration of Nick N’s life will be announced later on Facebook for friends and musicians to pay respects.
Meanwhile… see you on Oct 26th. Right?
Ahoy there Big Rollers! You wanted gigs? We have gigs for you. The GIGS PAGE has been updated with all the information available to date.
Starting with our regular shenanigans at The Bull’s Head, Barnes on Thursday 31st August, you can look forward to regular stints with Alan Price, also at The Bull’s Head, and outings with The Animals & Friends in Norwich and Selby. Plus a trip to Poland, but more about that as we get it. Let the Big times roll!
