"Sounds like it was all happening in Surbiton! I forever associate it with the Good Life"
The guitar God Eric Clapton went to school in Surbiton!
Less than 5 miles away was Eel pie island that started as a jazz venue, then folk was tried briefly. After that all the big names from the 60s appeared there- Clapton, The Stones(with a five month residency), The Who, Rod Stewert, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple. Black Sabbath to name a few
