I didn't know the Sword & teh Stone lasted that long either. I can barely rememberthe Turk's Head. I went to Passim's last weekend (Saturday eve) & didn't care for what was on stage, I went by the Nameless & was gonna check it out but couldn't find it. So I figured another "one done gone". I later hard on the radio (WUMB I think) a calender listing that included the Nameless as one of the venues & figured I must have missed. Still I can't find it, maybe it's moved? Anyone know?
Sorry I don't know your friend Mark & I don't have any news of him. Charles Street has changed over the years. The Grocery Store is still there, the Church but most else is gone of what would've been there from the 60's. My father ran a Yoga bookstore in one of the cellar store fronts for some time so I used to frequent the area but mostly I was there to drop in on my younger sister Cheryl who'd be hanging out there all the time through out her high school years. That & drugs was my recall of Charles Street during the mid to late 60's. There were a few young street musicians that we hung with "Dill" (harp & guitar) & "Big Moose" (guitar), don't know what happened to them either.
