Tommy Limb R. I. P.

Sorry to have to relay the sad news of the passing away of founder member of The Topspots drummer Tommy Limb, Tommy died on Wednesday 27th May after a short illness in hospital. A founder member of The Topspots, Tommy with the band was a Mersey Beat original, playing all the Liverpool clubs including the Cavern and travelled to Germany to play Hamburgs Star Club. While on tour they supported The Beatles and The Rolling Stones at various venues. After The Topspots, Tommy was a founder member of the sensational but short lived Mersey Monsters, he then joined The Defenders playing gigs across Europe. Having a family life, he settled down to resident compering and drumming on the Wigan club circuit. Recently Tommy return to the Rock n' Roll stage with the reformed Topspots, before illness forced him to retire. Tommy will be sadly missed.
