In the final episode of Series One Poor Bob Jones talks about how The Crawling King Snakes came to an end, his discovery and love of female singer song writers and how he is now helping to keep the traditional blues alive after leaving the music business behind for 30 years!
The full length video is followed by 2 trailers for this
As well as being a contributor to the series, BBC’s Andrew Marston also provided some great support for On The Record by putting together slots on his Introducing show for all our interviewees (not himself…professional to the end), I recorded these for a little bonus feature to mark the end of the current series.

Here we have some wonderful anecdotes from the 60s Blues scene with Bob, being asked to get up on stage with Alex Harvey, supporting the Spencer Davis Group and organising the music entertainment for the Rolling Stones after gig party in ’64 and telling them what he thought of their lead singer Mick Jagger!
There si the full video followed by a couple of trailers for this.
Poor Bob Jones takes us on a journey for the music fan and later player, from the mid 50s Rock ‘n Roll and through to his beloved blues for Part 1 of our On The Record with him, brilliant to get a first hand view of the darker side of the music fans from the Teds to the mods and rockers 🙂
On The Record Part 1 in full is the first video about his early music influences and playing in a time of Teddy Boys and through to the dawn of The British Blues boom and this is followed by a wonderful unedited bonus video of where Bob, as a mover and shaker on the Brum Blues scene gets invited to a Rolling Stones party in 1964 and advises Brian Jones, Bill Wyman and Ian Stewart to ditch Mick Jagger and replace him with a then unknown young artist called Steve Winwood and they were keen on the idea! 🙂
Then we have a couple of trailers for Part 1.
