Trevor Burton: Happy 70th Birthday!

Today is Saturday 9th March and it is also Trevor Burton's 70th birthday! As well as being a co-founder of The Move alongside Roy Wood, Bev Bevan, Carl Wayne and Chris 'Ace' Kefford, Trevor has performed with the likes of The Steve Gibbons Band, short lived supergroup Balls (with Keith Smart, Richard Tandy, Dave Morgan, Mike Kellie, Steve Gibbons et al) as well as Danny King and Raymond Froggatt during his career.

During the tenure of elo beatles forever (elobf), Yours Truly KJS has featured Trevor on many occasions be it with the excellent Trevor Burton Band and The Move or the Made In Brum and Stand Up & Rock! shows. We were also there when he celebrated being awarded his King's Heath Walk of Fame Star in June 2013 (review here) and also when he celebrated 50 years in the music business in November 2014 (review here). Trevor and his management have often been supportive of and have extended much courtesy to elobf so it goes without saying that we wish him a Very Happy 70th Birthday today!

Trevor has been quite poorly of late and a benefit event aptly entitled BurtonFest has recently been announced in support of Trevor from Saturday 1st to Sunday 2nd June to be held at Joe Joe Jim's Bar in Cofton Hackett, Birmingham B45 8UU with guests including The Steve Gibbons Band, Ricky Cool & The In Crowd and Danny King amongst not a few others. Remaining tickets are available via this link thus:
