Hi. I was at East Hills at the same time as Snowy. I was younger only 10 years old at the time but I remember the lads were cute and friendly and used to talk to my Uncle and Grandad about cars. I remember them all arguing about something one day. They were known for making a lot of noise in the laundry when they were practising and the older people on the hostel didn't approve but I thought the sound was great. I was just becoming more aware of music and the Beatles had sparked my appreciation and love of the new sounds.
