Good night Tony Elliott

In 1968 a young Tony Elliott created Time Out mag.
I have good memories of Time Out and I am sure some of you have too but Tony has
left us and the mag lives on

I used to work (production) on the Time Out street entertainment festival in Covent Garden in the early 80’s - got some great memories :sunglasses::sunglasses:

what a great idea he had and he has left us with memories of those days
has any one got an old copy somewhere

For once I can claim I really was there for the first …

In 1968 I was a college in Holloway, at a dept of the infamous Northern Poly. Our Hall of Res was just behind the women’s nick. The Roundhouse, down the road at Camden Town, was in one of its spells of activity. They put on a rock-fest every w/e from 4pm on a Sat to 4pm Sunday.

One w/e a folded piece of paper was given out, gratis. "a one-sheet pamphlet with listings for London". And so again the following w/e. T.O. had launched.

So! That saying about “if you remember the 60’s you weren’t there” is not true! I remember quite a lot, probably because I had an aversion to chemical entertainment.

For example, I remember the T.O. review of a J.J. Cale album being simply a box full of zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz’s

I recall it grew into an A5 booklet. When it got to A4 and colour pix I had a photo published in Lindsay Bareham’s section on "shopping/stuff/things… "

it was the time when Elton John sang Your Song his best.
The Roundhouse was a great venue
I used an enormous warehouse across the road from the roundhouse to gather
talent together to rehearse for a production.It probably became 10 blocks of flats
eventually…everything does.
It was the time of free life…not free love and everyone had their chance to get up and do something.
Time out and Tony was part of that magical period.

Yes it was, first saw Hawkwind there early 70’s. No drugs were ever harmed there…:sunglasses::sunglasses::sunglasses:

Hawkwind not my music but a close friend of mine ……her brother played with them
