Rob Wynne Jones was Wah! Heat’s drummer, who played on the last night Eric’s was open, and who was there when police raided the club.
I was intrigued after listening to Pete Wylie talking during part of the Wah! Heat set on a recording made the night of the raid (See You Tube link at the end of this article).
He seemed to have prior knowledge of the raid, because, in amongst other relevant comments, he says “Do you know how it feels to be the last Liverpool group to play Erics?”, and “This is the last song you’ll ever hear by a Liverpool group in Eric’s”, well before the police raid. So I contacted Pete to ask him how he knew that, but he very wisely maintained a diplomatic silence.
