memories
David Stopps, Friars promoter:

At the Dunstable gig they turned up very late and there was a dispute about payment. I remember getting a call the next day from their manager the legendary Don Arden (Sharon Osbourne’s dad) wanting to know why I had paid them half. After a brief explanation he accepted that this was reasonable (Amazingly).

what happened next
ELO went huge in the late 70s with their legendary spaceship lighting rig. It went a bit pear shaped in the end with Bevan touring with former members as ELO Pat 2, something he did also with The Move to Roy Wood's displeasure. Jeff Lynne released a new album under the ELO banner in 2001 featuring a fleeting contribution from Richard Tandy
