Mystery Lou band members in 1973

Postby MJG196 » 17 Apr 2017 02:08

bleach alerted me to this photo of Lou in early '73 that was in an eBay auction which just ended:

Image

From the auction: The photo was bought at an estate sale in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The date stamp on the edge of the photo indicates May 1973. Testimony indicates the most likely setting for the photo is Reed’s January 29, 1973, appearance at Humpin’ Hanna’s, a (now former) music club on East Locust Street in Milwaukee. Others have guessed it was taken at a show he played at Marquette University’s Brooks Memorial Union on May 3, 1973. A newspaper account of that show refers to Reed as “pudgy in a black leather jacket.”

What I find most peculiar is the black drummer and the goofy looking bassist. That is NOT the Tots behind him! Does anyone have any clue who they might be?

On a side note, I have found a few mentions of the Marquette University show online - so a new show to add to the gigography!
