You'd think that these were a cover band of the RHCPeppers but they're not. A fantastic band to see live.

A wonderful title. Red London - Sten Guns In Sunderland. Only audio I'm afraid.

Oh Lordy, I've just discovered a bunch of Ps in my Rs. No, not a dirty joke but a load of bands beginning with P that I've overlooked.

Patti Labelle and the Bluebells
Plastic Ono Band (how come no-one else remembered either)
Platters
Pointer Sisters
Prima Donna
Passions
Polecats
Phil Fearon and Galaxy
Pepsi and Shirlee
Pseudo Echo
Pasadenas
Pop Will Eat Itself

I'm not claiming them now (that would be 12 yellow cards), I'm just getting them off my chest.

Now, on to the Rs.
Here's another P for you then Paul -
Spoiler: show
Plonker!! :-D

Even earlier in the sixties. This is the band that the Beatles pinched Ringo Starr out of to replace Pete Best. At one time they were more popular than the Beatles in Liverpool. This seems to be the only live performance I can find and that's not Ringo on the drums according to one poster of this clip. It's not very good quality video but I think it might be Ringo as the drumming style is very like his.

Rory Storm & The Hurricanes - I Can Tell

I'm inclined to agree with you Paul, the left leg position, the head nods and the right arm lift are all very Ringo, not to mention the brief glimpse of his nose! :-D
