Billy Looks Awful

WHO ARE THESE RANDOS?

I have no idea. Someone in the comment section knows.

UNPLUG THEM IMMEDIATELY OR THE DISINTEGRATIONS BEGIN.

IS THAT A FIDDLE? I AM POWERING UP THE BOP GUN.

You have a Bop Gun?

I HAVE A CUSTOM-MADE ALEMBIC THINGAMABOOMER. I CALL IT A BOP GUN. I HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO A LOT OF P-FUNK.

I can dig it.

I KNEW THAT YOU COULD. I AM GOING TO VAPORIZE THE HARMONICA PLAYER FIRST.

Please don’t.

DENIM AND DUST.

Good song title.

I AM PLANNING ON CONTRIBUTING TO BOBBY’S COWBOY ALBUM.

Okay, but you can’t bop any of these people, no matter how absurd it is that they’re plugged into you.

BITCHES NEED TO GET ON MY LEVEL.

You’re right, but think of the press. Bad for the campaign.

YES. THE PRESIDENCY IS WITHIN REACH. I DID VERY WELL IN IOWA.

You mean at the 1974 shows you played there or at the caucuses which are next year?

YES.

No disintegrations.

 

Also: Lurkin’, drinkin’ Phil.

  1. I’m not sure I’ve seen this photo in color, but it looks like July 21 ’74 Hollywood Bowl. Maria Muldaur singing, John Kahn on bass, Paul Butterfield making a guest appearance on harmonica. I can’t remember the guitar players and the drummer. I should note that Maria changed her band every time out, so you can’t be certain unless you heard her announce it on stage. Probably David Nichtern was one of the guitarists, maybe Amos Garrett the other. Drummer could have been anyone in Los Angeles–Billy Mundi maybe?

  2. Have y’all never heard of reverse image search?

    This is why I’m more hip than uuuuu

  3. That’s not Billy–it’s Benji’s dad Benjamin.
    He was the band’s designated ethnic, so he pronounced it Ben-ha-meen

  4. Lurkin’, drinkin’ Phil is easily the creepiest and coolest thing in this photo…but where did he get the pecs and forearms?

  5. just like Billy Mundi
    in a shotgun ragtime band

  6. The wide angle shot looks like Weir (stage right). And some live hoochie coochie (stage left). hahaha
