Subject: RE: Popular Music. Doomed to oblivion?
I can believe it. Our jug band was asked to play at a street party in Camden around 1970 or so. When we got to the small terraced street, we found one end blocked by a huge pantechnicon with the tailgate halfway down. We were invited to put our little stage amps on to the tailgate, where everything was miked up very efficiently by a short, broad guy with a beard and long hair.
Turned out he was the Pink Floyd's chief roadie and the van was their tour van! We never sounded better!
