Black and White Memories (Stones)
Found this old picture in my files this morning and reflected on how many wonderful people had not made it all this way.
I think Brian Jones was a really big part of that early British scene that basically took on the whole world. Suddenly it was British music in the carts all over the world.
This picture was taken at one of the many television shows we did with the Stones in the 60s.
All us British bands (groups) knew each other and the UK scene was very small. We often shared rides with other groups.
After this `TV show in Birmingham I got a “lift” back to London in the Stones car. They had this big blue American car and a mad driver called Reg King and is one of my most memorable days as a teenager. Reg had a hammer and would drive close to vehicles and knock off their wing mirrors with his hammer, whilst driving!!!!! Something so shocking to the young Herman! What fun the Stones were. The Hermits were all going home to their parents houses for dinner and I was in a car with the Stones going to London with a madman driving.
