Eddie, who formed his first group The Panthers while at Rainey Grammar School, Magherafelt, aged 12, said: “I haven’t spoken to Paul in 30 odd years. “Last time we spoke was in Magherafelt – while I was walking the greyhounds. A voice said: ‘Is that you Eddie’ ? And I answered: ‘Is that you Paul’ ?” Paul Charles and Paul Fenn formed promotion agency Asgard, initially signing Punk band the Buzzcocks. The publication of ‘Eddie White’s Memoirs of The Showband Era’ by Los Montesinos author Andrew Atkinson, follows in the footsteps of music books by Paul Charles, The Best Beatles Book Ever; (The Complete Guide to) Playing Live and How to Succeed in the Music Business. “It was great to get the telephone call from Paul – we had a hell of a good chat – thanks to Andrew Atkinson arranging it all,” said Eddie. Paul Charles novels published, include: St Ernan’s Blues; One of Our Jeans Is Missing. Inspector Christy Kennedy Novels include: I Love The Sound of Breaking Glass; The Beautiful Sound of Silence.
