Conneyfogle Posted December 28, 2009 Share Posted December 28, 2009 I used to live in Twickenham all my youth til I was 17, Eel pie island is on the Thames in Twickenham, and consists of a few old shacks for houses and a rowing club, but in the 50/60's it was a hot spot for upcoming bands. Initially it was the Jazz bands that frequented the Hotel which was the venue. I know a fair bit about the Island and the history of the hotel as my dad played there many times and took most of the photo's featured in the book, inc the Stones which I have around here somewhere. Check this site out for some info on the book, I have read the book and recommend it as a great read. If anyone has anymore info on Jimmy's appearences at the Eel Pie Hotel, I'd be grateful for the info.
