RIP ‘Sweet Sweetback…’
Even if you may not know the name, you know stuff he did…

Alan Lancaster, bassist for most of the classic Quo songs.
Here he is, doing the opening performance at Live Aid.
This was his last live performance with the band for 25 years.
He played 26 games for Carlisle United, despite being second choice goalkeeper behind Carlisle legend Allan Ross.
