1977 Brian Vollmer/Long John Baldry

Taken at a gig we “almost” played in Oakville one Saturday afternoon. We had been playing all week long at the Queen’s Hotel in Seaforth, Ontario and Seipy had booked us Saturday afternoon in Oakville.  We were supposed to play and then scoot back to Seaforth and play 3 more sets that night.  Savoy Brown was onstage when the storm hit.  Down came the lights and the P.A. was flooded out.  The storm only lasted about 5 minutes but was amazing in it’s verocity.  One security guy had his chain around his neck hit by lightning and it blew the sneakers off his feet.  Believe it or not, I have a lot of the storm on film.  But I got to meet a legend-Long John Baldry.
