Google isn't giving me much beyond referring to the specific Clash gig. It would be a rough go to subbing in a for a drummer and have to sub in for another drummer during the same gig.Heston wrote: ↑15 Jun 2020, 9:55amI think George was a jobbing drummer, probably called in by Whirlwind for the gig. It looks like him.Marky Dread wrote: ↑15 Jun 2020, 9:51amVocals Nigel Dixonmatedog wrote: ↑15 Jun 2020, 9:35amThat's per discussions on the thread. It would explain the "Mister George" thank you Joe gives, but I can't find a lot of details on the band. It might be worth a deep dive.Marky Dread wrote: ↑11 Jun 2020, 11:53amNice pic. Phil Hardy then Gary Hassett were the consecutive drummers with Whirlwind. Never heard of George Butler.
Drummer Phil Hardy replaced by Garry Bassett late 1978.
Lead guitarist Mick Lewis
Bassist Chris Emo
Maybe George was a roadie?
I found reference to a drummer George Butler from the band Lightning Raiders around this time. Here's the wiki entry. So there was a drummer by that name in a London band around that time with that name. Maybe he helped Whirlwind out?:
Maybe some photos of them would help.
