Memories from Trev Teasdel
" I never got to see 21 Guns live as I left Coventry back end of 1980, but I met Stuart Mclean, the guitar player, at an EMF (Mojo (Tony) Morgan's Sky band) gig when they playing in a pub in Tile Hill. We walked back into Coventry centre after the gig and what a nice guy.
