Appeal for Back in the Day stories and photos

The Musketeers made quite a name for themselves in Rothesay in the 1960s.

This week’s Bits from Bygone Bute picture featured in the 2013 edition of our sister title Back In The Day and shows The Musketeers, a four-piece band who made quite a name for themselves on the Bute music scene in the early 1960s.

Our coverage last year of Iain Gillespie’s musical and theatrical exploits attracted the attention of one of his old friends, Gil Tod, who contacted us this week asking if we could help put the pair back in touch - and we were happy to oblige.

We’re now starting work on the 2014 issue of Back In The Day and are keen to hear from anyone with stories to share about the people, places or events of bygone days on Bute: if you have any memories to share, please contact us on 01700 502503 or by emailing news@buteman.com.

Thanks in advance!
