In 2012 Pete joined up with 3 guys from NE London calling themselves The Skodas. Everyone agreed this was a poor name, and Pete offered up the Odyssey Blues Band name as a means of getting more gigs on the blues circuit. Unfortunately, due to musical differences, Pete quit early this year (2015) and despite his protests the other three guys have continued to use the band name – changed slightly to reflect a blues and soul content – but this is now without any connection to the band’s history and legacy. Maybe common sense and decency will prevail and they will give up (ab)using this band name.
John L Watson will be laid to rest at Canford Lane Crematorium, Westbury On Trym, Bristol, on Monday 17th March at 1.30pm.
