there was a different drummer (Timi Tupe "yomi" Abayomi Babayemi) and (Jimmy Lynn) on keyboards.
that was during the summer of 1978.

so looks like you all need to do your research first before you start calling people liers.

thats a hell of a long name your dad had Guzzi :D

Welcome to the board

calling people liars is a bit strong...considering we saw a post that states something different

but it is always interesting to know some background history graemlins/bounce.gif graemlins/bouncepurple.gif

Was that your dad Guzzi? Yomi Babayemi, cool, I think you may have thrown us all when you said "don't think they remember" I have seen a few articles over the past few years with his name mentioned so he is still talked about I'm pretty sure I seen he purseued a music career with another band please correct me if I'm wrong...

also was'nt he a percussionest

P.s I thought he was dreaming not lieing :D

sorry Guzzi
