I played rhythm guitar with The Paiges until 1964 when I left to go to Sheffield Uni. We were Fender throughout of course - my red strat, Terry's blue sparkly left handed strat (special import) and Fred's Fender bass. Drummer Johnny Hutch later worked for Island records for a while but I lost touch with the others.
Sundays were the Alma Lodge and Fridays were the Lev (Levenshulme Sporting Club). That's where I was when I heard that Kennedy had been assassinated. I remember a big fight one night at the Alma Lodge - took my strat to safety behind the drum kit!
Our best moment? Beating Herman's Hermits in a talent competition - I think we came 2nd and they came 3rd. Don't know who won - but I think they played Red Sails in the Sunset.
I sold the strat in 1964 (big mistake) but I am still playing - see my web site.
Love to hear from anyone who remembers us - or from the lads themselves of course.
