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).

And then, I don´t know in which bands Felix played for a long period. He played with Bucks Fizz, and also Charlie, but don´t have enough details. Can anybody help, please?


I only know that Felix Krish played bass in their 1983 tour, but can´t find other info:
