GORDON SHEARD 1989 VERSION OF FLAKE




I JUST RECEIVED TODAY AN EMAIL FROM GORDON SHEARD, GUITARIST WITH THE LAST VERSION OF THE GROUP. 15 YEARS AGO, GORDON LEFT SYDNEY FOR THE DEEP NORTH. HE HAS BEEN BLAYING AT JOHNNO'S BLUES BAR 4 NIGHTS A WEEK FOR 15 YEARS, AND WITH A BIG BAND AT THE CASINO , 1 OR 2 NIGHTS, FOR LAST 8 YEARS. SADLY, JOHNNO'S JUST CLOSED DUE TO SOME LIQUOR LICENSING LAWS.


HERE IS A PIC OF GORDON (FRONT) PLAYING WITH PHIL EMMANUEL. AS MATT TAYLOR, SINGS, "STRANGE THINGS HAPPEN UP HERE IN THE NORTHERN SUN!"




HERE IS GORDON,(RIGHT), WITH THE BIG BAND, THE SWINGIN' ALLEY CATZ.

Hey Gordon! I haven't seen or heard from him since he departed for FNQ back in about '89. He looks OK, a bit less hair maybe (but haven't we all?). That Strat looks like the same one he had in '89.
