Photobucket Book Talk Radio welcomes Patrick Campbell-Lyons. He survived the sixties scene and is the author of a book called Psychedelic Days. As the author recalls, "He was remembering in great detail those ‘psychedelic days’ of forty years before when he navigated his way on a voyage of music. Thrill’s and pill’s rhythm and blues, the legendary Ealing Club, Island Records, Chris Blackwell Nirvana in Tin Pan Alley, the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Guy Stevens, Mickie Most, Paris with Salvador Dali, Rio De Janeiro with Jimmy Cliff, The Star Club in Hamburg, Stockholm, Belguim, Tangiers and the “happenings.” When Patrick stopped writing four months later he had a book. Patrick Campbell Lyons had been there and lived to tell the story. Today so many years later people fantasize and wonder about those crazy days and often ask Patrick ‘What were the Sixties like? It must have been a crazy time! I wish I had been there.’" Campbell-Lyons was part of the West London music scene from the early 1960s playing in several bands. He was the vocalist and a founder member of a locally-popular R&B band Second Thoughts whose lineups included future record producer Chris Thomas, Thunderclap Newman founder / drummer Speedy Keen and two future members of prog-rock band Jade Warrior (Jon Field and Tony Duhig). Second Thoughts split up in late 1965 and after a year living in Sweden, Campbell-Lyons returned to London in late 1966. Campbell-Lyons then pursued a career in the music business as an A&R executive and producer - while continuing to occasionally record solo albums including Me & My Friend, The Electric Plough and The Hero I Might Have Been. www.psychedelicdays.com gragroup.com/lyons.html
