Keith get a electric shock on the gig in Sacramento. He put the mic away with his guitar. The metal strings made a circuit and he got electrocuted.
Does anyone knows if there are pics from this incident?

Yes, in 1965 at the Sacramento Memorial Auditorium in my hometown of Sacramento.

My older brother Paul attended this show and I will ask him to share a few memories that I can post.

Film of this show surfaced in the last 2 or 3 years and has been posted on these boards. The original, I am told, sold for $25,000.

If I don't mix this up, I think a picture exists; wasn't it in some English magazine like "Mojo" or "Uncut" a few years ago??!

Thanks for the link, Tim, but the footage you're talking about, is it just those three pics or did I miss another link for a film clip?

Yeah, unless I just missed it. Also did some internet searching for the video, but no dice.

The Memorial Auditorium is still there and still hosts concerts. It's one of those sturdy brick buildings with columns in front that they do not build anymore. Opened in the '20's. Good place to see a show.
