GUEST,Rana Steve Hillage: Hurdy Gurdy Man (8) RE: Steve Hillage: Hurdy Gurdy Man 14 Nov 01

Haven't heard of Steve Hillage for years! Saw him and the others in Gong several times, including the time at Windsor in 1974 when the police finally turfed the free festival patrons off the park. (I had left well before then - mate and myself were there early in the week but were searched ("with a smile") at 2 am, 2:30 am, 3 am and 4 am (the last also with a "I didn't get these stripes for nothing sonny" when it was pointed out that he was asking a load of stuff the others didn't)).

Back to the topic - like "53" I've heard Donavan's song but not Hillage's. We just had a Hurdy Gurdy Gala in Toronto last Sunday - 8 Hurdy Gurdy's on stage at once!!

Cheers Rana (who might now dig out the Flying Teapots from the Planet Gong).
