Player of the Month: Al Lee
Kevin Swift, Beat Instrumental, September 1966
THIS THUNDERBIRD guitarist started playing in 1959. "I suppose it was Lonnie Donegan who started me off," he says. In '60 he was already pro., having given up work to go on tour with Dickie Pride. "We had a drummer called Lord Anton," says Al. "He was a real pusher, got us the job through working at Noel Gay's. There were only three of us, myself, Lord Anton and Ricky Charman, who's now with the Thunderbirds on bass."
