Special thanks must go to Bruce Mcintyre, Mark Robinson, Bryan Bronner and Steve 'Mac' McLennan, without whose help, and incredible minds for bands and musicians, this data base would not be as complete as it is. And, for sharing all the photos and clippings they have collected over the years.

Honorable mentions in dispatches must also go out to Rob Coxon & Family, Larry Shone, Les Gully, Trevor Dare, Tim Crozier, David Moore(RIP), 'Big Steve' Wakely, and Pucko who also went that extra mile with information, pictures, clippings or biographies.

A real BIG thank you to everyone.
