BRIAN ‘Licorice’ Locking, formerly of The Shadows, popped into Warnham’s Greets Inn this week for an evening meal.

Duncan Entwistle, proprietor of the Friday Street pub, couldn’t believe his eyes when Brian walked in.

“He is apparently considering moving to this delightful part of West Sussex,” said Duncan, “and said he was amazed by the Thai style chicken curry with courgette, baby spinach, dragon fruit and paw paw served with turmeric rice - one of the best pub meals he has eaten, which is a smashing compliment.”

Brian played bass guitar with The Shadows for 18 months from April 1962, when he replaced Jet Harris.
