The original 3 Keys formed in Chester, Pennsylvania (a suburb of Philadelphia) around 1931, when John Furness and Bob Pease began performing together at roadhouses near Philadelphia and Chester. "Slim" Furness, the guitarist and baritone, was born on September 9, 1912 in Oxford, Maryland.The family name was actually "Furniss" (sometimes spelled "Furnis"), and appears that way in many non-newspaper documents (which rules out misspellings).At present, UK pubs alone invest more than £60million in door staff, CCTV and general customer security every year.James Arkell, managing director of the Swindon-based Arkells Brewery, which is a member of the British Beer and Pub Association, said: "We do not condone excessive drinking, which is anti-social and can be damaging to health."We encourage our landlords to take a responsible attitude, because we all prefer our customers to enjoy the civilised and sociable atmosphere that our pubs provide."And we also look forward to hearing that supermarkets are following our lead with the banning of cheap, promotional drinks offers."Bid to stop 'speed drinking'It is understood that all pubs owned by Carlsberg, Heineken, Scottish & Newcastle, Youngs, Theakston and Diageo are joining the campaign.And breweries spoke out in support of the ban, calling for others to follow suit.The move is aimed at cutting the cost of excessive drinking in British pubs, which the Government claims sets the country back £20billion a year.In the 1920 census the family appears as "Furnace", but this isn't as weird as it sounds."Furnace" and "Furniss" would have a similar sound, with the accent on the first syllable (FURN-iss).
