very sad, but then his situation had been very sad for a long time.

What a grotty dive that was.

Does anyone else remember marvelling at the, coloured oil, light projectors!

Call the Marquee a grotty dive. I spent a few happy years there making those oil/water filters and repairing the 'hi-fi' 2 x 807s in each amplifier. Got in free if I made a few filters. Then moved to a smaller club in one of the pubs in Croydon, when they told us to shut because of the noise and overcrowding we had Cream, Hendrix and Edgar Broughton for our last three nights and that was noisy! Turned the place into a folk club after that.

Sounds to dream of. They were good times.

I specialised in McIntosh Amps and landed a gig at the Alexandra Palace with the Grateful Dead as the guy that looked after that side of things had managed to break his arm.

I lived in Chelsea from '66 and later had Cat Stevens's Pattie D'Arbanville living with me.

Sid Barrett 3 CD boxed set last night as a tribute -


we had Cream, Hendrix and Edgar Broughton - there was 'music' in those days

Not really, but I do now regret spending so many nights sitting with my back propped against the speakers at the front of the stage, that I've now lost 50% of the hearing in my right ear!

Bloody good days though (or should that be nights?)
