Many of you will already know that Richie 3-Balls Salami (AKA Richie Taylor) died recently.
Richie was a vital part of The Fabulous Salami Brothers – a seminal street theatre act for over 20 years throughout the 70s to the 90s, featuring luminaries such as Taffy Thomas, Mike Bettison and Jim Woodland – The Chiploatas are their direct descendants and many of us in the industry have been inspired and delighted by their work.
I have attached a picture of The Salamis performing – with Richie on drums, Paedar Long on saxophone, Mike Bettison on melodeon and Jim Woodland on the mighty tambourine.
