Hello all I'm interested in a couple of bands from the swinging sixties, one was called the Zero's and the other was called the vince earl attraction, the vince earl attraction appeared on new faces but I'm looking for any photo's of the bands prior to that period or of any memories of any of the band members,I wonder if any one has any old flyers?

Cheers I have done,I'm more interested in the band the zeros than in vince earl,I'm looking for old photos and memories of people who went to see them in the majestic in birkenhead or at any other show they might have been at the time.
I've found a copy of a used ticket for a beat session sat 10 feb 1962 st pauls presbyterian church hall,northroad, birkenhead.
beat session staring the fabulous beatles and the zeros.
If any one has any original tickets or flyers I would be grateful if I could get a copy or buy them if there no longer needed, thank you in advance,
Does anyone remember going to that session? thank you in advance

Thanks egg for the links, I've seen the vince earl attraction pic before,I was looking for anything a bit earlier, I've got a few photo's that don't seem to be on any other site so I'll Upload them and send them in to a few of the sites,I can't seem to find much mention of the zeros so if anyone has a flyer or a ticket from back then I would love to have a look.

Defo Ray Whitehead Bass player with the Zeros, They were a support band on The Jerry Lee Lewis Tour but The Killer married his 13 year old cousin and brought her with him on tour, the newspapers found out about it and the tour was cancelled. The Zeros Big chance Lost. Ray used to live in North Road I also think The Fonz modeled himself on Ray. 3richard.
