Arthur was really something special.From the times in his second hand shop in Kingston upon Thames to the wonderful,heady nights at Eelpieland.Great memories of a great person.May You rest in peace Arthur. Chris Mitchell , Switzerland


thanks to everyone involved with the service - it was both moving and inspirational


Picked up a radio 4 prog and heard the news of Arthur's passing. Knew Arthur from the late fifties till I moved to USA in 1985. He was the greatest enabler I have ever known. He loved the people around him and believed everyone he came in contact with was capable of greatness. A truly selfless man dedicated to others. I will miss you Arthur

Dr Stella Rosenoff

I can only echo Jack's comments about Arthur being a great enabler and such a believer in the potential within us all.He was a truly remarkable human being and the world is the poorer for his loss. I am honoured to have had Arthur as a dear friend since 1962 and miss him greatly, as I always will.

Hello, Michelle
I was sent to you by Gina at the Eel Pie club. I am an author in Berkeley, CA, USS (I'm Canadian though) and my book about Long John Baldry and the British blues scene of the early sixties is set to be published this fall by Greystone Books, Canada. I am URGENTLY seeking publishabl photographs of the Eel Pie Hotel back when it was running in the era of my book. I am also eager to find pics of Long John Baldry and Rod Stewart onstage there, or of Arthur Chisnall, or any of the bands that played there, like Cyril Davies All Stars or LJB's Hoochie Coochie Men.
We are well past our deadline, so please respond soonish.

Thanks so much and good luck with your own book.
