"I'm sure you'll get many, many responses telling you that the ban was Jimmy Shand's - with Sir Jimmy in the forefront.  There is an imposing statue of him in his home village of Auchtermuchty.

There is a picture of this statue on the Wikipedia page for Jimmy Shand."

"The accordion player was Jimmy Shand who came from Auchtermuchty Fife.  He was famous in the 1950s and 1960s for Scottish reels, etc.   It could be his band or perhaps he was playing as a guest."

"I'm sure that many people have already e-mailed you to tell you that the accordionist in this picture is the great Jimmy Shand, but just in case they haven't, that's who it is."

"I remember 'Jimmy Shand and his Band'.  In the same year as this photo was taken, Buddy Holly died (3rd February 1959 - I was wearing a Harris tweed jacket, white shirt with cutaway collar, cavalry twill trousers, brown suede shoes and a cravat - the height of fashion) and we teenagers never had any time for the likes of Jimmy and his ilk who represented a bygone Scotland from another era that we wished to dissociate ourselves from.

We used to say: "Jimmy Shand (and he's banned)" to indicate that we belonged to a new and more internationally aware generation."
