Off-topic, sorry. I am just reading your April 23, 1976, review of Lynyrd Skynyrd at the Memorial Auditorium. Probably the most terrifying review they ever got! "These hungry, crawling creatures looked like miniature scavengers grasping to ascend an almost dead giant body in an effort to pluck the last bit of life from it." I wasn't there, but I was - thanks to you. Great stuff.
