What happened to: The Vapours

According to Colin Larkin, David Fenton was last seen as a landlord of a public house in Woking, Surrey (UK) and Steve Smith went on to found a band called “Cut” (whoever they were).

Reader Ken Sweeny (who sent this a long time ago, sorry) updates us with: “Dave Fenton is a very successful Music business lawyer, Ed Bazalgette makes history programmes for the BBC, another one has a big job in the PRS where songwriters get there royalty cheques from.”
