Hi Andy,
Sorry for not responding earlier. Have been busy and not been accessing my messages in a timely manner. The faces look familiar but I'll give it a try...

(This blog reader got it most right; we won't reveal yet but he's got the credit for being the nicest to answer the quiz although he was far away on a trip. Thank you SK.)

I had no idea who No9 and 10 are. I didn't imagine how Dick Lee was when he was a young kid.

Apologies Hiroshi: #9 Dave Chan is the original lead guitarist for the Silver Strings in the 1960's and recorded some of the 12 original songs on vinyl. #10 is Rahimah Rahim a well-known Malay recording artiste. I did explain that: NOT ALL PERSONALITIES ARE THAT FAMOUS BUT THEY HAVE BEEN FEATURED ON THIS BLOG. Thank you.

HIROSHI DEGUCHI (JAPAN) said...

Thank you foe telling me. I may be too young to know them.

JIMMY APPUDURAI CHUA (ENGLAND, UK) said...

What about Dickie. When was he in the Silver Strings Andy. Thanks

ANDY: Pop Music Not Pills. © said...

He joined after David left, Jimmy. They both had a share in playing lead guitar for the vinyl recordings. I guess the photos on the EP and Single covers tell the difference. Thanks Jimmy.
