Hey fella`s the wife and I are doing a bit of reminiscing, does anyone remember the Natraj or Nataraj Indian restaurant on Broad street back in the late 70s early 80s.
We used to go there after a great night bopping at Faces night club five ways, we would then walk down Broad street at 2am in the morning for a cracking curry.

Agree0 Disagree0

Had great times in broad street in the 70s,
The rum runner was a popular haunt for me and the missus,
There was a club further up the road on the opposite side which we would go to but my memory has completely gone on the name of that club,
Can anybody help me out with that club,
Dementia is creeping up on me and the wife,

One of my favourite haunts was mother's in erdinton,
Seen all my great bands there,
Jethro tull
Family
Yes
Emerson lake and parmer
Cream
Jeff beck,
I could go on and on them were the days,
Yet I can't remember that club in broad street in my previous post,
Memory is such a complex thing,

The Ritz, Kings Heath. Early 60's
The Beatles live, twice. Appeared there the day after their first Number 1
Many other great bands.
Beatles were the ONLY band that people stopped dancing to enjoy the performance.
Were you there?
Most of my friends from then are no longer with us.

{Ed001's Note - the Beatles weren't always that good or popular. Many years ago my grandad put together a charity concert for the ambulance service in Liverpool and the Beatles were on the bill at number 10! Ken Dodd topped the bill and the Beatles were just meant to do a set either side of the intermission, but the first half of their performance was so bad that Doddy said to me grandad: "George you are going to have to pay these off not to do another set or there will be no one left in the audience for me to perform to!" So the Beatles were paid off in the interval and never did the second half of their set. My grandad maintained to his dying day that they could not play their instruments.}

I have been to the ritz as well
Did not see the Beatles not a really big fan then,
But liked them towards the end of there time,
Big john lennon fan,
The who were great and I saw the persons who I always liked,
Great place the ritz,
Not many places now to see great performers only the NEC and the like .
Saw Tina Turner 3 times and the eagle's who are one of my favourite American bands,
Great days they sure was,

Hi Ed, what a mistake to make.
62' onwards amazing.
Doddy was an old fashioned artist but great.
Try typing in Doddy and see what comes up. Dodgy, then Doddo.
The taxman always knew.

{Ed001's Note - Doddy was a family friend mate, my grandad's best friend, and in large part responsible for me doing the sites as he would always tell me to work in computers when I was a child.

He only got his break thanks to my grandad, who was double booked (he was also a comedian, and a ventriloquist, and a magician until he sawed the top of his thumb off sawing a lady in half) for 2 shows in one night and asked Doddy if he could cover for him at one of them. Doddy was struggling badly in those days, drove a clapped out old banger that my grandad regularly had to push start for him, and so was happy to take the job. There happened to be a talent scout in the audience and he signed Doddy. The rest, as they say, is history.}

Great story Ed
Makes a change from all the arguing.

{Ed001's Note - it certainly needed something to break the monotony!}
