Then I saw something that really caught my eye, thinking it was from the era of my formitive years. I imediatly knew that I'd put it in a frame of some kind and give it to Matthew my son for his apartment. You see we're really music lovers in our family especilly Matthew and I. But nothing like my sons Godfather Gerard, my little brother who is a bit of a music whore, pardon the expression. I cannot stump him on any music. If i ask him about a song he'll not only know that but he'll know the producer/ composer. Truly amazing!
So I spy this poster with Mick Jagger on it. I know I'm bidding I really don't care one wit if it's authentic or a copy it's fabulous looking. And because I know my Stones I know this is the concert where the Hell's Angels killed someone! Just terrible right? There was a lot of violence that night at this concert. And all Mick Jagger's intention was was to do a free concert on the west coast because the east coast had Woodstock four months earlier. On the lighter side I did find something really amusing about this poster, read on....
My "P" today is for this poster......
I dropped my ten bucks and got this poster and what I love about this particular promo poster is this... look the names of the special guests listed on the right.
- Grateful Dead
- Jefferson Airplane
- Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
- The Flying Burrito Bros......who in the world are they?
I have never heard of them in my life! Talk about playing in some seriously freaking awesome company! So remember my aforementioned brother? He was 6yrs old at the time of this concert but actually knew who they were and could name some of their songs.
Here's the Flying Burrito Brothers I thought you might want to listen to them! And dig the clothes they're wearing while you're at it....
So tell me did you have posters of your favorite band or rock star on your bedroom wall? Or maybe you had a poster of a sports star or of movie stars on your wall instead.
And the only other vital thing I want to know from you is have you ever heard of the Flying Burrito Bros. before today?
