PostSubject: The Hollies 2003   Wed Jul 22, 2009 2:11 pm

In November 2003, I had the pleasure of seeing the 1960s legends the Hollies live at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre with the late great Carl Wayne on vocals in the wake of Allan Clarke's retirement.
I have been a fan for years and they are a group I had always wanted to see.
They performed the Hollies classics everyone knows and loves such as 'The Air That I Breathe', 'Just One Look' and 'He Ain't Heavy He's My Brother' plus the Move hit 'Blackberry Way' as a homage to Carl's former band and the Mud hit 'Tiger Feet' to honour bassist Ray Stiles's chart heritage.
When they returned onstage after the break, Carl had a pint of beer and a stuffed dog in his hands and he was doing a joke ventriloquist act with the dog whilst drinking the pint!
He was a lovely man and the show was awesome. Sadly, Carl died of cancer 10 months later at 61 so I'm glad I saw him while I could.
