About this memory

Previous to this he was a member of Rab Thallon’s Band Circle managed by the infamous Tam Paton.
Rab was one of Edinburgh’s characters, now sadly no longer with us, who owned the Scope clothing empire in Cockburn St and Rose St. Around the same time he played with the Wall Street Diversion and a Bathgate Band called Platform with Stuart Kaplan, who used to be the DJ at the Casablanca, on Hammond organ.
