Don't think he was Rod "Boots" Slade as he played the bass. The only band of that era that had a tubar were Bonzo Dog who had Rodney "Rhino" Desborough Slater.

I wouldn't know as it's before my time  :P but I do know many artists are multi-instrumentalists i.e. at this moment I wouldn't rule him out.

Another link I found although not much to gain but depending on what's sought it may be worthy?

Maybe not Rodney Slater, he was still alive and kicking in May of this year.

Thanks for the input, guys!

Funny you should mention Rod Slater of the Bonzos. He was in the same flat and actually told me about this guy.

Rod, the tuba player, wasn't a professional, but was a member of the St. Martin's Jazz Band in 1961 alongside Rod Slater. Rod Slater became a Bonzo, and other Rod didn't.

By 1964 or so, Mr. Slater had moved into St. Mary's Terrace where he found the other Rod on the floor below. He can't remember his surname, but I thought that having the address - and names of both Slater and O'Neill as other residents - might help me find my man.

As I'm writing a huge history on the Bonzos' earliest years, knowing Rod the tubist's surname would be a useful addition. Hence the searching!

Hope this is useful. You lot have been :)

And in the avoidance of doubt, Rod Slater definitely is alive and well. He released his debut album this Summer and is about to tour it!

There are several Rodney Slater's in the electoral roll 1962-65 paddington and 2 Michael O'Neill. All on Anc***ry but I'm not subscribed.

Thanks, Solidrock. Looks like that would be just the ticket for finding the errant Rodney II.

Sadly, I don't have a subscription this year, either.
