An American and a GI, he played around the bases. He was playing at the festival and that's how I ended up taking his photo. I got some great live shots of him and the band [The Ram Jam Band]. They were very popular. This was probably taken at the Windsor Festival. I can't say for sure but that looks like Tubby Hayes in the back there, a great jazz player and drug addict who died eventually.
