Default YouTube: Young Danny says cheerio to his mum and heads out with his guitar

Interesting one.

Most of this is a performance of "The Universal" by the Small Faces, but the clip concludes (beginning at 1.35) with young Danny Kirwan saying cheerio to his mum and heading out into London with his guitar, bound for Boilerhouse or Fleetwood Mac.

Dunno where this comes from and by the looks of it, neither does the chap who posted it.

I wonder who filmed it and how on earth did that piece of film ended up in the clip?

Yes this is a real curio .There must be more footage of what happens next somewhere, hidden away in somebody's basement !
Talking of which Danny is coming out of a basement not a cellar, as I believe a cellar has no windows and the steps are within the building Whereas many houses in london have basements which are below street level and have steps going down to them directly from the pavement but have coventional windows with a to allow as much light as possible in Often these were made into seperate flats some time in the history of the buiding ,but because they got less light etc the rents were lower than the flats above them, so flat sharing musicians, 'actors and artists, tended to favour them ,espcially in areas like Chelsea and Notting Hill .Also several Lonon recording studios were in basements

Any Danny Kirwan footage from any era of his life is welcome. Thanks for this! If that's his real mom (and not a staged "Cheerio") then he really was a young boy swept up into the big leagues before his time!

Not sure if that's his real mother, but that is without doubt Brixton, where Danny was born and lived at that time (1968). Right at the very end of the clip, the building Danny is walking towards is The Queen, a pub which was demolished about five years ago.

http://www.urban75.org/brixton/bars/the-queen.html

Brixton Academy (music venue) is very close by, and the street which Danny appeared to live on is Bellefields Road. Apartments in that street now fetch, on average, 330,000.

Oops, sorry for the delay there!

Yeah, at the moment I live on the far far western edge of London, but I drive around the city two or three days a week, and I've got to know all the nooks and crannies pretty well!
