One thought on “The Avengers

  1. We had Terry Walcott on bass for the first half of 1964 as well. Terry, Keith and Rosco had been students together at Brisbane SHS ’til the end of 1963. They were joined by “Snowy” Monaghan and Graeme to work on the Gold Coast over the holiday period ’63/’64. With Garth, they appeared in a early heat of “Showcase 65”. For a later appearance on the show in that year, Roger had replaced Keith in the line-up.
