Subject: RE: 2015 Obit: Tony Slinger (Bristol caller, etc)
So sad to hear this. Tony did in fact call a lot with Peeping Tom back in the 90s, and was MC at their 21st and 25th birthday celebrations, along with a star-studded cast of callers.
I first met him in 86/87 when I was managing Whippersnapper and he booked them for a gig in Bristol (Yesterdays I guess). We struck up a strong friendship based on a mutual love of music, and many a long hour was spent on the phone!!
So sorry I couldn't make the funeral, but I understand there is to be a memorial gig/hooley in the Autumn.
RIP old mate.
