Picture Proofs


Just got these from my pal Geoff in Manchester – Rosemary, taken at the Art College in 1969 and featuring the ‘Wizard’ of the drums

  1. Can’t believe the amount of hair!!!!!
    It’s as ridiculous as the lumberjack beards of today!!!!
    Fashion I suppose ?

  2. I wonder if you knew Davey Jones who often roadied for us? He had the most hair in the whole world. Fashion for sure – a drummer emulating the Gandalf-look perhaps, and a singer pursuing the androgynous fashion – which often took him close to trouble around Pompey! Mind you, in my case I’d been at Pompey Grammar where you could (and I did) get beaten even for a smart Birdcage length cut – so it was certainly partly a ‘Fuck You’ moment in my life!
