Wishful Thinking

by on May.23, 2012, under Uncategorized

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the sudden death of Brian Allender.  Brian was the drummer with ‘The Emeralds’ and one of the founder members of  ‘Wishful Thinking’….

We are informed that Brian died of a heart attack at his home in France.

Our thoughts are with his wife Jayne and his family.

    Sorry I just read Brian pass away last year.
    I remember him as a happy man and we always had a lot of fun when they were touring here in Holland,he was very hospitable too and were always welcome when we came to Farnborough .
    Brian thanks for all joy you gave to my brother Jan and myself.
    Love to the rest of the group and the family.
