All three bands together? They were playing for the one and only Chris McClure! (album cover star)

The venue? The Old Harrow in Main Street, Grenoside, on Friday night - two days after missing the Brits award ceremony on Wednesday due to their hectic diary.

Chris spoke in the daily star;

He said: "It was a night I will never forget. I've known the lads for years but nobody let on what they were planning to do. It was a complete surprise.

"My mum Cheryl organised it with them and I can't thank everyone enough who turned up for making it a top, top night.

"Everybody had such a great time - even I had a go at singing.

"I got up and gave it my best Dusty Springfield - I guess I had a few too many."

Landlord Matt Platts said: "It was a fantastic night. The Monkeys, Milburn and The Reverend were brilliant.

"And it wasn't just thrown together on the night they had been practicing together for weeks. The bands performed a set of songs together
including covers of Oasis, Bob Marley and the Libertines mixed with a sprinkling of their own stuff.

"It was a fantastic night and one I don't think anyone who was there will ever forget."

Matt said he had to restrict the numbers of partygoers to around 120.

"We kept the party very hush hush for safety reasons as we didn't want thousands of fans descending on the pub."
