Some Say

The Mojo's version of They Say - last spotted on Ebay closing at £21!

One of the earliest vid's logged in the blog was bouncy,bouncy Oddjob-a-like Rodge Martin's 1966 appearance on The Beat with They Say, but some ol' spoiler pulled it within a couple of weeks of my first peep. However, after a two year trawl I've finally tracked Rodge down again, so grab it while you can - a few notes though:

Freddie King on lead
Clarence 'Gatemouth' Brown on Rythm
Billy Cox (Hendrix Band of Gypsys) on bass




Rodge martin - They Say

They Say had previously been giving a going over by The Mojo's in 1963

The Mojos They Say



Can you spot the early doors celeb in this 64/65 period Mojo's photo?
