Billy Walker's Uppercut Club
Anyone on here remember it? My standout memory was seeing the Small Faces, I think it was 1967. Their roadies were chucking over enthusiastic girls off the 6' high stage. I was 15, desperate to pull birds and I'm totally impressed and in awe watching Stevie and the boys throwing them away!

PS North Bank on Saturday afternoons too, Happy Days. ⚒

Talking of Billy Walker, anyone remember his fast food chain 'Billy's Baked Potato'?

That business was the first set up by his brother George, went on to become Brent Walker, owners of pubs hotels and Breweries. They also financed films including Quadraphenia.
Then they went skint

Terry Downes beat Sugar Ray Robinson didn't he? to be fair, Sugar Ray was 42 at the time

I see Billy lives somewhere in Essex with his fourth wife. He is now 78.
Terry Downes is also still punching above his weight at 81. Now he was actually a world champion!

My old man saw Little Stevie Wonder there.. Amongst others I can't remember now. He saw Hendrix at The Manor House pub N London.

Re: Billy Walker's Uppercut Club
southwoodford You might have seen Hendrix play the second time he played the Upper Cut in Jan '67? That was a regular night time gig.

Well it ended around 6pm on Boxing Day so I guess it was dark by then ;-)

I don't know how much of a supporter of WHU Billy Walker was but as a lad I regularly saw Terry Spinks over there in the late fifties early sixties.

I read the book Passion is a Fashion by Pat Gilbert about The Clash and it's mentions in there about Hendrix writing Purple Haze in the 'green' room at Upper Cut, which was actually purple. Goes on to say that when the club was demolished loads of hippies where there to grab a piece of the rubble. What a story

Re: Billy Walker's Uppercut Club
Someone told me Billy and his brother George owned a garage in New Barn Street Plaistow. I wonder if they were Hammers fans.

Re: Billy Walker's Uppercut Club
If my memory doesn't deveive me the band for the Stax gig at the Upper Cut was Booker T and the MGs, certainly contained Steve Cropper, "Duck" Dunn and BT himself.

Re: Billy Walker's Uppercut Club
Sounds the nuts... I imagine my old man would have been to this place (seeing him tonight so will ask) ... used to go to all the clubs (la Discoteque, Flamingo, 100 Club) in the 60's... think he saw everyone play apart from the Beatles (never liked them)... I asked him what was the best gig he saw and he reckoned Booker T and the MG's at the Moby Dick ... he reckoned half the audience were all famous pop stars of the day

Re: Billy Walker's Uppercut Club
Great days and I believe Hendrix wrote Purple Haze for obvious reasons and on a fag packet.

Had my Stag up the Lotus I seem to remember :-)

Green with envy withn anyone who saw Jimi play live. Although I did meet him once on the London Underground a few days before he died.

Re: Billy Walker's Uppercut Club
Went to the Upper Cut several times, though more a Lotus man (boy) me. Remember the Stax show - Otis et al and also saw Jimi. Missed The Who, though did see them at the Ilford Palais. Those, truly, were THE days.

Blimey, that takes me back to my first job years ago. As a kid, I had to look out for the old bill while the ice cream van was on double yellow lines fleecing tourists outside Madame Tussauds. Couple of quid a day, lovely.

Re: Billy Walker's Uppercut Club
I'm reading Eddie Blundell's autobiography at the moment and Billy walker and the upper cut club have had quite a few mentions
