Welcome Irish Jack


I would like to welcome another mod legend onto The Mod Generation: 'Irish Jack' is one of the mods from the Goldhawk Social Club in West London, where The Who first built up their mod following. His name has been associated with the band ever since and he has, over the years, shared stories of his life and times with audiences all over the world.


Jack has already very kindly shared some of his stories on The Mod Generation, including the part he played in the roots of Quadrophenia. You can also read the further advenures of 'Him and The Who' on the Zani site.


Welcome Irish Jack!

  • Welcome Jack, we're all looking forward to reading more about "those crazy days back in '63!".

    • Hello Irish Jack and welcome to the site. Speaking of The Goldhawk Social Club, there is a Liverpool Scooter Club called The Goldhawks named after the Social Club.

  • Great stuff, a true Legend and as Ger says a Gentleman. I first met Jack at a gig in Ballina Co,Mayo back in the early 80's. London band "The Scene " were playing when we realised the guy at the end of the bar was Irish Jack I think we tortured him the rest of the night :-)..

    He kept the Irish Mod scene united with the "Who are you" news letters back in the days before the internet it was our only link.and as you said Ger for a young Mod getting a mention in Irish Jacks newsletter was a big thrill....

    Welcome onboard Jack

    • Welcome Jack. Another living legend,keep up the good work Stephen. You've got me feeling all nostalgic John, my family's from Belmullet!
