I am now living in Australia and was really surprised to find this web site. I am related to Dave Edmunds. My mother and his mother were sisters. I never tell anyone as people would not believe me but everyone has family famous or not.
Didn't he lead 'Love Sculpture' on their single Sabre Dance?
I wonder how many sisters there were because I knew the family and Dave?s mother?s sister was Sheila Chapman mother of famous guitarist Paul Chapman (Lone Star? ) Dave is therefor Paul?s uncle. I met them both when I roadied for Paul?s band in the 1960?s Paul was born in Whitchurch Road, Cardiff.
