9 or 10, but was living in Jersey City at the time, two hours from Max’s farm, and it was what all my Mom’s friends talked about at the time so I have pretty vivid memories of the events and vibe that was happening. She was a music freak who, although she didn’t play an instrument, had every kind of popular music blaring in the house all day. All her friends were like that, so I was exposed to lots of music (and other things) at an early time of life. Lots of acts like Dr Hook & The Medicine Show and the Manhattans were getting their starts playing in local clubs, and just seemed like local guys hanging out. It was a unique time, and I saw a lot (good and bad) for a kid just breaking into double digits. The tattoo I have on my right forearm came in 1970, if that gives you any indication. It was the Wild West, in the East.
