The purists may frown at the inclusion of Rod the Mod in this database but he is here for a number of good reasons.

He appeared frequently at the Twisted Wheel Brazennose Street, often with Long John Baldry, in various groups including the Steam Packet.

He has covered many soul records and his Those Old Motown Records is a tribute to all the Motown soul songs he idolised.

He can sing a soulful tune and his song and  Those Old Motown Records shows where his heart is at.

As a Scottish football supporter he wished he had been born in Scotland but he wasn’t he was born in London on the 10th of January 1945.

Rod followed the Mod fashions and in the spring of 1965 he was there wearing an ice blue denim jacket with a massive (Dr Who Tom Baker) style college/university scarf wrapped around his neck and almost reaching the floor.
