  1. Catching up with my past I was in the Jet Harris Band later the Wes Minster 5 and new ZOOT for a short while as I left the London scene in 1966. 1970 I joined The ROCKIN BERRIES. here's a few words from my Blogsite www.terrywebster.co.uk email terrywebstars@hotmail.com
    Wes Minster Five line up1964: Vocals and Bass guitar Tony Brook alias Terry Webster Jim Ellis drums Paul Martin Raymond keys Clive Burrows baritone sax Wes Minster guitar Blue Beat label Carnival was aimed at the London Afro/Carribean market.

    The WES MINSTER 5 did sessions for Carnival records and we were the second line up to the original band. They were buddies with the ZOOT MONEY band. I first new Zoot at an open air gig on Weymouth pier one wet rainy evening. A faithful few were determined to enjoy themselves braving the weather and stomping in puddles to the beat. Zoot was good laugh and great showman. My bedsit in Fulham next to the A4 was a stones throw from the Zoot band digs. Zoot enticed our sax man Clive Burrows to join him. Their guitarist at the time was ANDY SOMERS (POLICE). I was invited to sing my record O0 Poo Pa Do with them on stage at the Flamingo Club. Never been so nervous in my life even after drink and drugs and found myself repeating the chorus over and over as I had a mental block.

    Andy gleefully rung me after my EMI record release to say that a record shop window in Fulham High Street was crammed with my pictures.'Fame At Last!! I rushed excitedly down there to find my pictures advertising 'Latest record release! Simon Somebodyorother? latest record! ??? I returned to my bedsit deflated and annoyed that the great EMI could be so incompetent to get my pictures mixed up with this Simon guy. Andy found it amusing as a 'Gotyer!' but at the same time sympathetic at my bad luck. Even he was a poor struggling musician at that time. Terry
