Dan Hicks And The Acoustic Warriors, Followed By Iron Butterfly, Opened For John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers.
My friend Bill Gaines, the soundman, was amazed that Dan Hicks agreed to a board patch.
I would ask Bill time and time again to ask the band if I could patch in. He would always look at me like I was an idiot, but I told him that it never hurts to ask. Bill came back from backstage and looked shocked. He told me that Dan said yes, so I used Bill’s Panasonic SV-3700 DAT recorder because it was already plugged in to the effects rack, and left my D7 and microphones in my bag and ready for John Mayall’s set.
I've seen a lot of shows at the old Pozo Saloon. It is a 100+ -year-old Stage stop out in the middle of Nowhere, about 16 miles from Santa Margarita. The shows are always outdoors on the lawn in the back of the saloon. In later years they built a big stage in the pasture out back, but in the old days the shows were held on the back porch of the saloon.
Supposedly, when Bruce Springsteen wanted to meet with Clarence Clemons, Bruce suggested the Pozo Saloon because it was midway between Los Angeles and San Francisco. The story I heard was that they sat and talked for hours and not a soul recognized them!
RIP Dan Hicks (Feb. 2016)
