Like almost every other roadie, I learned on the job. The easy way and the hard way. By the time this picture was taken it was January 1983 and hot as can be. I had a contract with 2SM, the AM radio station under threat from 2MMM. They were hosting free summer concerts, we had a mobile stage on hire from Orana Truck Rentals. I had a car trailer towed behind, with a big generator. My PA truck would back up to one side of the stage and we would have the amps and stage monitor desk inside. A fete stand tent out front would be the mix position. With a crew of four, we could set this thing up in 80 minutes, and we would do two shows a day for 14 days straight.
This Blog is everything that is NOT in my new book. It's a collection of very random, un-edited pieces. Gives me the chance to let you hear my voice, and see some pictures.
