Subject: RE: Help me locate this Author: Dave Wallis
I found this site through Google, having had, for no reason obvious to me, a random thought last night about 'Only Lovers....', a book I haven't thought about for 40 years or more.

I am a jazz musician, and in the 1960s I was living and playing music in London. My piano player was Tom Culbert, a teacher working in North London, who got our band a gig playing at the launch of a novel by a teaching colleague, Dave Wallis. This turned out to be 'Only Lovers.....', and we all got a copy (mine has long since vanished, although I remember reading and enjoying it). I remember it was planned to make a film starring the Stones, but I don't think that ever happened.

I've not heard of or seen Dave Wallis since that party, but Tom Culbert is still an active pianist now living in Cumbria. I've not seen him for a few years, but his phone is 01254 247328. He may have some information.

Good luck,

John Wurr
