The Scribbler was this week going to post another entry to the blog, on other famous bands that have played in Kingston and Surbiton.

Perhaps if you are feeling in the mood today, wander down to Tolworth roundabout and lay some flowers by the hoardings where the Toby Jug pub used to be.
Because, as we noted in an earlier blog in December, which you can read if you scroll down on this page, that was where Ziggy Stardust was unveiled, one chilly night in February 1972, in front of only 60 or 70 people.
“Ziggy played for time, jiving us that we were voodoo.”
Back in a few days…..
