This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. My intention is to tell what I know about them, hoping that those people who like them too, will help me fill numerous gaps, which I may have in their careers and discographies. Sorry, but there are no MP3 audio files here at all, just info (and love for the musicians).

    QUESTIONS:

    01. Les has recorded with Roger Knott, but don´t know in which recording(s) he may be featured.

    02. I've read Les has recorded with Tina Turner, Jack Bruce, Paul Young, Labi Siffre, Hell Fire Club, Bucks Fizz, Paul Rodgerds, Carmine Appice, Bill Wyman, but don´t know the albums.

    03. Did Les play for Pete Atkin again in September 1975 for John Peel sessions?

    04. Les also played in some sessions for Holly Hardy, but don't know if the tracks have been ever released. Does anybody know?

    05. Am I missing some lineup of East Of Eden with Les Davidson and Dave Arbus together?

    06. Was Les a member of the band Half Brother?

    07. Has Les played for Gilbert O´Sullivan? Live or studio sessions?
