The blog has hit over 30,000 views, a great way to mark that milestone is with two features in the local newspaper.
In April, the blog included an interview with two founder members of Beckett, Les Tones and Arthur Ramm. During their time Beckett had played countless gigs around the North East with stand out support slots with Rod Stewart and the Faces. They also notched up dates with Captain Beefheart, Alex Harvey and Slade. Signed with major labels Warner Brothers and CBS, released a single and self titled album. They also found time to appear on BBC TV music show the Old Grey Whistle Test, and a slot at the Reading Festival. On Monday June 4th journalist Peter French wrote an article and featured the interview in The Shields Gazette newspaper and on it’s website – with part two of the story published on June 5th.
