Rick Westwood has been lead guitarist of The Tremeloes since 1962.

He & friend, Barry Webber, played at KH around 1956., when he was 13 years old. They both played skiffle on acoustic guitars & Barry sang.

Rick's first public performance was on the stage in the Main Hall and he visited KH in January 2011 (photo opposite)
