Quotelaertisflash "...the Vietnam war was justified..." I thought that only Chuck Norris could say that in 2020... Norris had a brother that was killed in Vietnam.

L.A Forum, July 10, 1975. Watching that lotus stage fold down and then HTW. Lord have mercy, that was awesome.

The 1975 Brown Sugar-NYC-flatbed truck announcement looks like V4s to me. I still have mine that I bought in the late '70s. Great for that Stones-Faces sound of the era, but I can't haul that to gigs anymore.

I think Ian Stewart had the best ones, "You think you're good musicians, but you're really a bunch of screaming nancy boys." "Rolling Stones? Name sounded like a family of Irish acrobats."

She and Glen Campbell did a terrific album. Ode is not only a great song, but it's also a great record (something that's been missing for the past three decades).

Martin was reading cue-cards written by some Hollywood TV writer. I don't think he cared either way. It was what TV was at the time.

It's because he was a novice at it at the time. Sometimes that can work in a musician's favor.

It was 1973, and I was Beatle-mad because my sister had left her Beatle LPs at home when she went to college--that and a regular listener to AM radio. My next-door neighbor was also Beatle-mad but was 16-18 months older than I was (a big deal in pre-teen years) and had bought Goat's Head Soup. He told me, "I think we should listen to these guys." Then I saw the clips on Don Kirchne

Quotejlowe Had forgotten Stephen Stills was in the frame to be a member of The Monkees. Appears his thinning hair and teeth let him down! How shallow. No one knows how far Stills got in the audition process. I don't think he did a screen test. Stills says he really wanted to write songs for the show, but when he found out they had Boyce, Hart, Carole King and those folks, he backed out a

QuoteAquamarine I loved the Monkees, and saw them live in London at the Empire Pool in 1967 (possibly 1968)--it was a terrific show, and by that time they could all definitely play their instruments and then some. RIP Peter. Wow, you saw one of those gigs? Early July 1967. 4 or 5 gigs, I think. Lulu was the opening act, and it was promoted by Brian Epstein and NEMS. Got good reviews, too.

Probably from interviews promoting Love You Live. That jacket looks familiar; I've seen it in other photos.

I asked Michael Lindsay-Hogg about this a few years ago on his FB page, but I didn't get a response (although he did answer another question of mine not related to this). Keep in mind, we're dealing with a band that doesn't care about any of this; plus there's no real market for it, unlike the Beatles. Odd, too, that, MLH hasn't responded about the new Let It Be/Get Back

Regarding a link above, Prince never went on a 6:00 or 7:00 at night. More like 2:00 in the afternoon or something. And it had nothing to do with race, or women in his band, or Reagan or anything like that. It was just a rowdy R&R crowd of the time. I do remember the Doors having a big renaissance at the time, though. I remember, too, that Throrogood peppered his between-song banter mentioni

I was at both shows. Keep in mind that nobody knew who he was (more later). I remember the audience throwing trash, but only people in the first 20 rows or so could have done that. This was still a beer-and-bong crowd, and from the first few rows, he looked like Hendrix. Funny, I still remember the thigh-thighs and trench-coat on the first day. Perhaps I'm wrong.

I like the Dirty Work cover with the red wrapping (when you unwrap it, you have all those '80's colors). It's a clever idea -- Better than the Emotional Rescue cover.

I have about a third of this show on other boots, but this total one shows they were damn good on this day. Too bad we don't have more photos. I have a soft spot for the JFK and Anaheim gigs, though. The boot I have from Cleveland seems to start out good but kinda loses something; maybe the weather (didn't it rain that day?). Are there any tapes from Boulder? There's very few ph
