Dolphin Taylor - Tom Robinson Band

Tom Robinson Band

Dolphin's first band was Dragon's Playground, which earlier had had Annie Lennox as a flautist. In 1976 Dragon's Playground appeared on ATV's New Faces.

His career with the Tom Robinson Band started when Dolphin gave a friend a lift to an audition as bass guitarist for the Tom Robinson Band in 1976. As the band had no drummer at that point, Dolphin (who was already a drummer) filled in. By the end of the evening, the band was still looking for a bass guitarist, but had found their drummer. He stayed for two years, eventually resigning in 1978.

    New York state sentence for a Peeping Tom is six months in the workhouse. And they got no windows in the workhouse. You know, in the old days they used to put your eyes out with a red-hot poker.
    John Michael Hayes (b. 1919)

    If he go on too far to find a grave,
    Mostly alone he goes.
    —Edwin Arlington Robinson (1869–1935)

    The band waked me with a serenade. How they improve! A fine band and what a life in a regiment! Their music is better than food and clothing to give spirit to the men.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)
