Swinging sixties on Carnaby Street

And then there is this piece from British Pathé highlighting circa 1967 vintage hipsters. Look out for familiar faces!

Thanks to Yvonne for the info.

    Fantastic to see a young and “armed” Jon Lord and nobody yet could imagine the impact of his “killer” Hammond in the future years to come…

    @9: in 1967 Jon Lord was 26 (born 1941)

    by the way: (1967): no mobile phones, no internet, no mtv, no streaming, no HDTV,
    no YouTube, no Google…

    Have a nice Day!

    This is Jon with the Artwoods. They released their
    last single under the name “St Valentine´s Day Massacre” ?

    Perhaps some publicity ?

    Jon even mentioned the Carnaby Street event on this website:


    “Actually I felt bloody ridiculous,” says Lord. “It wasn’t too bad abroad but back in England we had to wear these suits and I felt stupid playing R&B dressed like that. We all did.” Despite the Scandinavian success, various promotional appearances with actress Faye Dunaway (who’d played Bonnie Parker in the Hollywood film), and a show in the window of the Lord John shop in Carnaby Street which was covered by cinema newsreel, the group disbanded. Wood concluded: “It was a sad way to go, but when all is said and done it was a good single. It had a great atmosphere and I still really like it.”

    What a great piece. Including a 26ish-year-old Keyboard great.

    Can you imagine strolling the city carrying artillery these days?
