"Michael Francis 'Kirk' Riddle, founder member of the Stormsville Shakers, a loyal friend and demon bass player, sadly passed away November 2017.
He will be fondly remembered, literally driving the band out of Farncombe Youth Club in 1961 and into the wild world of rock 'n' roll. His descriptive compliment "rocking like a bastard" summed up Kirk's style. Never to be forgotten." - PG-T.
