The late John Stout on drums on a fantastic Pearl kit I owned 25 years ago and then sold to the Stout family.

So that's Jim, John and Pearl identified. What about the other two?

I recall the names Bill Langskail and Tommy Mainland playing at Robbie's party.

Don't think so. Any other offers?

Alec Andrews (surname, not 100% sure) on keyboard and Les Lea on clarinet. A pair of great old jazzers, which I assure you is not as rude as it sounds!! They were frequent visitors to Hillanders when I still had the shop.

Nothing wrong with being an old jazzer, Graham.

Alas, Robbie Sutherland is no more. He died a month or so after I posted this picture. His legacy will live on.
