Tribute to Allan Ganley from John Taylor

The BBC paid tribute to the late Allan Ganley with a concert recorded live on 28 August 2008. All the usual suspects are there including Vic Ash, Alan Barnes, Mark Nightingale etc. It's a cracking band and a worthy tribute to a great drummer.

Thanks John. Allan was a great drummer and a favourite of many local guys including Marshall Walker.
