Andy Staines in the 1970s had long hair a beard and was a very happy hippie. He had a voice like honey and a beautiful smile.

We did a lot of live concerts. If you were at University in London during the early 1970’s chances are you saw Andy and I play at the college gigs. Andy’s song Summer 71 was always greeted with such amazing applause …….so we would keep it until near the end…I still remember him singing this on stage, lights in our eyes but still seeing the front few rows and their faces in quite enjoyment…….

This is my tribute to those past days and to Andy’s song.
