How it all started: For almost fourteen years I lived on the Costa Blanca in Spain. Following a visit I made to my hometown of Hartlepool in June 2004, it was suggested to me to start a web page featuring some of the old bands, or groups, that graced the pubs and clubs of the area back in the 1960's. The idea started after Billy Crallan, George Hart and Ed Saul all joined forces to play some of the old songs to help celebrate Ron Blair's 60th birthday. Billy Crallan, Ron and I played together in The Trakkers and George, of course, was the original lead guitarist of The Hartbeats. The photograph above shows George Hart, Billy Crallan, Stan Laundon and Ron Blair at Hartlepool Cricket Club. So, what started as an idea has now expanded into many pages and is dedicated to the great bands of that era and the friendship we all enjoyed. Photograph © Marion Crallan.
