Manfred Kuhlmann's book "The Sound with the Pound" lists one line-up of the Zeros as John Parry, David Skinner, John Kitson, David Brown and Kenny Webster on drums, but there's no photos or any further information.

John, One of the dates for the tour was to play The Tower Ballroom, New Brighton the American Rockers would be backed by a local band. Did Jerry Lee play the Tower ? Did The Zeros get the chance to back him My mate Bernard Phillips worked with Ray Whitehead and the story was related to him. Iv`e heard stories of Birkenhead Bands that nearly went to Hamburg BUT etc 3richard

yes that's the same one' played with Ronnie Bennet on steel guitar, I don't remember the other band members names, I know the bass guitarists first name was Joe, I thought they were the best country and western group around

mike oldam was my brother he played drums, barry ezra played lead guitar, ray whitehead was my husband and vince was the frontman, they did play on the tower ballroom new brighton with jerry lee lewis but I can't remember the date at that time vince wasn't with them and brian Hilton played rhythm guitar, the night they played at st pauls youth club which was opposite to rays house north rd, the beatles fans arrived in a coach and one of their fans girl fell off the stage and banged her head badly she was taken to hospital as I remember, I often wonder how she got on,ray and I got divorced in the late 70s so iv'e lost most of the memorabilia however i'll have a route round to see whwt I can find.
