20-25 giugno 1970, ho partecipato allo show di FZ al Fantasio (o forse Paradiso) in Amsterdam. Io ero sul palco a un passo da FZ. La band era composta da Frank Zappa- Vocal/guitar. Mark Volman - Tambourine /Vocal. Howard Kaylan. Vocal. C'erano altri musicisti, probabilmente questi: Aynsley Dunbar- Drums. Jeff Simmons - Bass Ian Underwood- Sax /keyboards. George Duke- Keys. Ero arrivato in Amsterdam dall'Italia e in Torino avevo comprato Burnt Weeny Sandwich così avevo viaggiato senza più denaro. Non avevo neppure diciotto anni. Amavo FZ e lo amo ancora. Per me è sempre accanto a me. Aiutatemi a ricordare la data e il luogo. Voglio anche ricordare i pezzi eseguiti. Credo che avesse suonato qualcosa da Hot Rats (willie the Pimp???)

June 28th 1970 Bath Festival, Shepton Mallet Showgroung, Shepton Mallet, Somerset, UK Not from memory, but I was there, for mid summer it was a cold, windy afternoon. Hope this helps fill in a blank
