The Ealing Club

There's a documentary coming about The Ealing Club where many great British bands played in the 60s. Ealing is just up the road from me, hard to imagine it being the centre of something cool and happening.

Also - as it is Remembrance Sunday- Egham United Services Club is not too far from the Royal Borough of Staines Upon Thames.

Lots of bands play there too. Though they are getting on a bit now.

Regarding The Who, they also played at The Railway Hotel in Wealdstone and there is a film of this.

They also played in The Oldfield, Greenford which was later a middle of the road disco place

And

St.Joseph’s Hall in Wembley. Keith Moon was from Wembley.

Re: The Ealing Club

Toby Jug in Tolworth had loads of bands in the 60s and 70s - David Bowie, Led Zeppelin a more unlikely spot than Ealing Broadway. There is nothing there.

Re: The Ealing Club

I used to go to see the Stones there  in, I suppose, 1962 when I still hadn't made the  change from 501s and Anello and Davide cuban-heeled boots to penny loafers and buttondowns from Austins. That was on a Friday contrary to what the owner says, although it could well have changed later.

The club was popular with art school students from both Ealing College  and Harrow.

I used to live near Charlie Watts and used to see him walking to Wembley Park station in the morning when he still had a proper  job.

Cyril Davies also had a regular gig at the Railway Hotel, Wealdstone, on a Tuesday with the Who playing on Wednesdays, I think.

Re: The Ealing Club

Charlie Watts seems the real deal stylistically, very early.
