I was chatting with my friend and musician Adrian Wood (ex Mayfield Pupil) when we got onto the subject of T-Rex. I said to Adrian that I knew their drummer. ‘Bill Legend’ he said. ‘No’ I replied, ‘Bill Fifield’. Adrian was sure the name was Bill Legend and I was sure that it was Bill Fifield. On arriving home I checked Bill Legend/Fifield on Wikipedia and right at the top of the page it stated, ‘Bill Legend (born William Arthur Fifield)’. Both Adrian and I were right.
Bill may not remember me but we met a couple of times whilst I was connected with the Marks Gate Youth Club back in the 1960s. We met at Chris and Ted Poole’s home on the Marks Gate Estate in Chadwell Heath. I have read about Bill’s Christian activities and I would love to contact him. My son Colin is a drummer and has just joined the ‘Good Thinking’ band where Adrian Wood is the bass player. Perhaps someone reading this post could give me some information as to how I can get in touch with Bill Legend-Fifield. Thanks.
Hi Tony…Thanks for the info regarding the connection with Mike Holdaway…Unfortunately I can’t recall Mike at the moment, but I was a member of the Marks Gate Youth Movement and I was indeed friends with Ted and Chris Poole…Therefore I don’t mind giving Mike my email address if he is interested in contacting me…With thanks..Bill Fifield
Thank you, Bill, I’ll pass your email address onto Mike.
Hi Mike, not sure if you’ll get this or not, it’s over three years since Bill replied back to you. I’m his sister, Eileen, and just thought I would let you know that Bill has got a FB site, if you wanted to get in touch, under Bill Legend. He is now living in America, California, with his American wife Julia. I last saw him when he came home over a year ago. I live in Wickford and my other brother, David, lives in New Zealand.
