John Dalton's



The Cuckoo’s Nest

A few years after I had left The Kinks, I met up with Mark Four guitarist, Eddie Phillips, who had by then left Creation, and we formed a band to raise money for  Leukaemia, called “The Bullettes”. That led to us forming a new band, “The Cuckoo’s Nest” with Mike Richardson, Steve Phelps and James Hayford, (Jimmy Virgo in The Bluejacks)

We were playing four times a week in the 80s., including a regular  Friday gig at our own Rock & Roll club in Cheshunt.






The Cuckoo’s Nest reformed for a one-off gig

on 20 February 2010 at The Wolsey Hall, Cheshunt.
