Danny never played in Outline or Casablanca except for a couple of times as a guest player, but was never a full member. He did play in Jimmy and the Boys.
Gary Grant is a great guy who managed Outline and as far as I can determine never had a band with anyone. Of course he went on to help manage INXS for at least 10 years. In the old days we were all friends….
We spent sometime playing in a number of Jazz Fusion style bands with him… a great guy Mark. Dave Tucker played bass in Casablanca….
Dave was so big he used to have a weekend removalist company called Bull Goose Removals and he used to move upright pianos by himself….
John Marks played in Casablanca and originally in Outline. Jenny Watson was our lead vocalist originally and she is a great singer. She eventually married Harpo… great people.
