  • Zoot Money

    Was browsing through a book this morning called London Live about all the old rock venues in London from the 50s onwards and Zoot Money gets a mention along with a host of other artists. I've never heard any of Zoot's music, though of course he's one of Mike's favourites. I'd completely forgotten that Andy Summers of Police fame was a member of the band and that the Big Roll Band became psychedelic band Dantalian's Chariot (see bio section of Zoot's site). Any fans out there, apart from Mike?

    There are some sample downloads you can make from the site, although if you have dial-up like me they take a while.

    p.s. didn't the club Klook's Kleek (see the Live At Klook's Kleek album) get a mention in one of the Cornelius books somewhere?

    R&B fans went to Klooks Kleek, Eel Pie Island, The Railway Arms (W. Hampstead) and to The Flamingo, Wardour St. At the Flamingo on any given night you might have Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames on stage, with most of the Small Faces, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Burden, Zoot Money, Bill Wyman and a host of others, including myself and Lang Jones at the bar. They were great days in the mid-1960s. A very demanding audience, though. At least one famous American band which didn't perform very well was booed off the stage. Zoot remains one of the most admired keyboard players amongst his fellow musicians, though in recent years he's done more acting than playing. I think you'll find there are a couple of albums available at Amazon uk. Or were the last time I looked.

      Ah Mike, glad you found this. I'm quite intrigued by Zoot and must check one of his albums out some time. Really wish I'd been there in the mid-60s to experience all that stuff first hand. I envy you
