I remember driving to see tha Fairies at the Chalk Farm Roundhouse in the 70's and seeing Larry Wallis waiting for a bus in the Walworth Road (he used to live over the Fantastic Boutique). I would have stopped and given him a lift if my car would have been bigger, or his hair smaller!

Just wanted to let you know that back in the 50's & 60's, my dad was the star of his own television show which aired in Beaumont, TX called Don Mahoney & the Kiddie Troupers. Did you know that Johnny & Edgar Winter performed on that show a various amout of times? To this day, they still remember my dad. My nephew spoke with Johnny Winter while he was appearing in Las Vegas about 3 years ago, & Johnny visited with him in his trailer before the show. He also had my nephew to sit in the front during the show, next to the stage. Just wanted to share this story with you.

Ain't it funny the way the majority of former "hippies" are the ones who did all the writing on little mags financed by mummy or daddy. They all seemed to come from roughly the same background. Yes I have read Days In The Life etc...
the fact is it's not what you know its who you know. admittedly a few average people slip in to add spice or for novelty value. Also the way they progress in life is to rehash "happenings" and show pics of themselves in the 60's. Then again who wants to admit their going grey, living in an expensive little cottage, sipping a g+t in the inglenook. Or the more adventurous seek out Kesey to pretend once more. Mind you they must be in their element with the web to indulge in.

I am interested in any and all information about the late, great Derek Taylor. I am doing research about the '60's L.A. rock scene (Byrds, Turtles, Mamas & Papas, etc.) and the Sunset Strip scene from 1964 to 1968. Derek Taylor was at the hot center of it all. Tragically, this great man has left us, but if anyone (most especially, members of his family, and close friends) can provide me with personal reminiscences about Derek, and about what HE remembered about L.A. from '64 to '68, I would be most grateful.

STONEHENGE 1984 - blew me away. Went for a weekend, stayed for a month. Memories? Hawkwind, Here & Now wandering about and the Enid playing while I feel in love with a woman called Sue Jones. Where is she now? She used to live in Coventry, rode a horrible Honda G5 motorbike and was the coolest, most beautiful woman on earth. I'd love to hear from her or anyone who knows how she is doing!

Hi Phil, It's been awhile since I last saw your site. As before, I admire it and your work highly! Thanks for doing it. I wish I could have a pint with you, to hear first hand some tales from the road. I am also a photographer and really enjoy sharing work and life experiences. I had a chance to shoot some great stuff of Daevid Allen in 1981, in Cleveland during a solo performance. He is such a warm and sincere guy. It was very positive exchange.

I really enjoy your web page, and I'm sure many others appreciate it also. My best friend and her dad are the two I have to thank for bringing the dead into my life there music is so soothing and there will never be another band that will do what the dead did for music.

Just found this site after searching for the Pink Fairies. Nice to know that they are still remembered. Used to see them in 1970 before Paul Rudolph was deported back to Canada (or supposedly) and before they reformed with Larry Wallis - never the same after that. What ever happened to Paul Rudolph? Such a great guitarist. The Fairies were instrumental in changing us from skinheads into acidheads.

I've been listenning to Pink Floyd on and off since the age of 13 (19 years). I find the music of Pink Floyd to be the most accurate reflection on life of our times, unfortunately. With all our advances, technological and otherwise, many of the lyrics of the Wall, Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here, describe what I go through year after year. You may ask, as I do: Will cosmopolitan life ever change?
