Anyone who knew Buddy

Post by Jane »

If anyone knew my lil' bro, who was a member of the original Grosvenor Road Squat, I'd love to hear from you. His name was Charles Bolden, but he was known as Buddy.

Buddy was a lovely guy who sadly died in 1981. I remember that many of his fellow travellers attended his funeral.

hi Jane, welcome to the forum :)

i remember Buddy from Grosvenor Road, tho i didn't know him well -- it was a shock to hear he died so young -- if you're on Facebook, then you could post message there about Buddy, and maybe photos?

can't remember for sure, but think he lived in No 14 or No 16

Hi! and thanks for your reply. It's great to know someone remembers Buddy ... I hung out at Eel Pie, saw Yardbirds at Richmond Community Centre etc. but wasn't around during the Grosvenor Road squat era.

Strangely, my mother and youngest brother Bruce later moved to Grosvenor Road (little side-road behind police station), and some guy appeared last weekend who remembered Buddy!

I don't know much about Facebook, but will take a look and try figure out what to do - thanks again! :D

I'm trying to locate the photo i took that extract from and i'll post it if i find it.
I knoe Janet was friend with him, perhaps she'll post a message at some point but she doesn't visit internet very often.
