Fabulous Falcons - Ipoh Malaya 60s (Part I)

You've heard of the Fabulous Echoes from Hong Kong but just as popular in the 60s was a group that made a name for themselves as recording artistes and as a pop instrumental group in Malaya (Malaysia today).
These boys are The Fabulous Falcons (image) and have appeared in numerous functions, stage shows in their country, together with Malaya's Elvis Presley, Rocky Teoh.
"I am a musician and have been one since the 60s when I was a teenager. Though I play the keyboards, the guitar will always be my first love... (Joseph Chin)." Thanks to Joseph for his immediate and positive reply and for access to his photographs and articles.
There is another group called The Falcons too but they are from Kuala Lumpur, Malaya in the 60s.
More about him and the group in future postings.
