My friends and I saw Joe Cocker open for the Who at the Grande Ballroom in Detroit in 1969. This was the Premier of the Who‘s Rock Opera “Tommy” which turned out to be their biggest success. No camera’s allowed inside.
We used to be regulars and saw many well known acts, some I cannot recall but their regular bands at that time got to be friends/acquaintances of ours. Iggy & the Stooges, better known as Iggy Pop & The MC5 among them. We would sometimes get together at John Sinclair’s house and stuff “anti-war” literature in envelopes with some other very interesting people that will remain nameless, for now anyway. Enjoy the memories of Joe and “Delta Lady.”
