A few years after I had left The Kinks,

I met up with Mark Four guitarist, Eddie Phillips, who had by then left Creation, and we formed a band to raise money for  Leukaemia, called “The Bullettes”. That led to us forming a new band, “The Cuckoo’s Nest” with Mike Richardson, Steve Phelps and James Hayford, (Jimmy Virgo in The Bluejacks) We were playing four times a week in the 80s., including a regular  Friday gig at our own Rock & Roll club in Cheshunt. (from Johns website)

Wikipedia: On 8 November 1976 Dalton finally left the Kinks, after spending most of the summer of 1976 rehearsing and recording Sleepwalker. His replacement was former Blodwyn Pig bass player Andy Pyle.
