The original 'Vehicle' line-up was Andrew (Drew) Clark - guitar and vocals, Alan Doc Bingham - drums, Davy Johnstone - keyboards and Alistair Kerr - Bass and vocals.They played at a rock concert in Castle Douglas and met another Kilmarnock band called 'Canyon' with lead singer Robbie Gray and after the gig Alistair asked Robbie if he wanted to audition for a new band.Ricky Squires from Ayr took Alan's place and after some reorganisation, Drew Clark moved on to join 'Yankee', then form his own band 'Hollywood' who worked around the circuit for a good few years and are still believed to be playing in 2016! Their first full time professional date was 'Shopping Week' (a sort of Gala week) in Stromness, Orkney.The boys played for 7 days, a 1 hour set at lunchtime (open air) and a 4 hour set at night in the town hall.Colin Robertson of Lion Leisure became the band's manager/agent after they had built up a fair following gigging around Scotland.The boys came second in the National Evening Times talent contest in 1976 and decided to make a full time commitment to the band.He had retrieved Eddie's undamaged Gretsch guitar and had even taken it home 'to care for it' before it could be returned to Eddie's family.By the following year Dave Harman had formed his own group which became known as 'Dave Dee And The Bostons'.
Harman accompanied the police to the scene of the accident and thus became witness to one of the greatest tragedies in Rock and Roll history.The abbreviated line-up; Dozy, Beaky, Mick And Tich soldiered on in the new form but without success.Sadly, Dave Dee's attempt to restart his career as a solo performer during 1970 was not a lot more fruitful with just one minor hit, and he eventually turned from singing to production and became head of A&R for WEA Records, signing many bands, including AC/DC, Boney M and Gary Numan. Kramer, Emile Ford, Ronnie Carrol, Alex Harvey and Del Shannon.Then played around 5 or 6 days a week all over the UK.The band played mostly cover versions of older songs and gave it a rocky drive.
