The truth of the story is that Joe Berger is the man who not only introduced John Entwistle to Rat Race Choir band which was already dysfunctional, he convinced John to come to Chicago Summer The NAMM Show in 1987 to play a set with them at the Vic Theatre with a little bit of help from myself Jon Hammond as documentarian for my cable TV program on MCTV – John Entwistle was already a long-time friend of Joe Berger and we filmed him doing an epic jam in Frankfurt Germany together with Zak Starkey on drums, Joe Berger guitar, John Entwistle bass and special guests Jack Bruce, Steve Stevens at the Soundcheck party in Dorian Gray nightclub inside the Frankfurt Airport on the night of February 2, 1987 musikmesse Party as seen on my TV show The Jon Hammond Show. Fast forward to November ’87, here we are at The Stone Pony Joe Berger is at the mixing console, I am filming (Jon Hammond) with a special Sony industrial camera GCS-1 like film, I went all over the world with my GCS-1 cameras documenting musical history for cable access broadcast, we are now in our 33rd year on MNN TV Channel 1 Manhattan Neighborhood Network and streaming worldwide. It’s time to set the record straight on who Joe Berger2 is and how he put John Entwistle together with this group which was already broken up and somehow between Joe Berger and John Entwistle they managed to keep them together enough to play a short tour, even though they were fighting like babies off the stage (also on camera but I prefer not to show it) Mark Hitt did a fantastic job on the guitar, Jack Hotop keyboards also outstanding, Steve Luongo played drums and was self-appointed tour manager which caused a lot of problems in my humble opinion – Dave Chmela vocalist and Luongo are not even on speaking terms, a lot of things went wrong but this documentary footage was early in the tour – the answer to Howard Stern’s question “Who is this Joe Berger” is right here folks! Rock ’n Roll history, Bill Curbishly attended the K-Rock Blood Drive gig that kicked it off at The Bottom Line, after reporting back to Pete Townshend about the gigs with John Entwistle and Rat Race Choir thanks to Joe Berger, Pete Townshend sent a telegram to John Entwistle​, John told me that Peter said for him to stop playing with the American blokes or there would never be a Who reunion. A few weeks later The Who John Entwistle, Pete Townshend and Roger Daltry went in to rehearsals and a subsequent reunion tour after a period of being on non-speaking terms. So thanks to Joe Berger​ and in part myself after we brought the films to England and delivered them to John Entwistle at his London house from the Vic Theatre gig and Dorian Gray Nightclub Frankfurt, John felt confident enough to fly over to New York and make the tour, this footage is directly out of my camera folks, enjoy it and keep the Spirit of the late great John Entwistle who very sadly passed away on June 27, 2002 in Las Vegas NV at the Hard Rock Hotel, RIP John Entwistle – sincerely, Jon Hammond​ - Next segment: Mike Vax Takes it Up an Octave at JEN 2016 Louisville Louisville, Kentucky! http://kernelpanichammondcast.blogspot.de/2016/03/mourning-lutz-buchner.html Usage Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 Topics Lutz Büchner, NDR-bigband, Horns, Auster Bar, Jon Hammond Band, NDR SESSIONS Projekt, Hamburg, #CableTV #HammondOrgan #CNNiReport -- RIP my friend Ron Polte - manager of Quicksilver, Ace of Cups, Wild West Fest - Jon Hammond (my band opened for Copperhead on one of the very few live gigs they played in 1972 at The Longbranch Saloon) Tam Junction and Piatti Mill Valley Restaurant - Breakfast with Ron, rest in peace Ron Polte - Jon Hammond : *Note: We had a lot of fun in the old days at 759 Harrison Street San Francisco when we shared rehearsal space with The Quicksilver Messenger Service at Bruce Hatch's San Francisco Radical Laboratories aka SF Rad Lab in years 1968 / 1969 (not to be confused with radiation lab folks!

He was 84. Mr. Polte had been suffering from multiple health problems and had been under Hospice care since May, said his wife of 20 years, Sally Robert. “He was a good man,” said Quicksilver band member David Freiberg, speaking by phone from Florida while on tour with the Jefferson Starship. “I could always trust him to do what he thought was right.” Born on the south side of Chicago into a family of nine children, Mr. Polte had a tough childhood, but managed to turn his life around after being in and out of trouble with the law as a teenager, his wife said. In Chicago, he became friends with blues singer-songwriter Nick Gravenites (“Born in Chicago,” “Buried Alive in the Blues”) when they were teenagers and followed him out to San Francisco in the early 1960s. They were the first of the Chicago blues crowd, including Mike Bloomfield, Elvin Bishop and Mark Naftalin of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, to relocate in the Bay Area, most of them settling in Marin and Sonoma counties. In 1967, Mr. Polte took over management of Quicksilver and the Ace of Cups after their original manager, Ambrose Hollingworth, was seriously injured in a car crash near Muir Beach. “When we needed somebody, there he was,” Freiberg said. Quicksilver was the last of the San Francisco hippie bands to ink a major label deal when they signed with Capitol Records in late 1967. “He took it slow and steady and wouldn’t take a deal if he didn’t think it was right,” Freiberg recalled. “It took a while, but we got a really good deal with Capitol.” Mr. Polte was known as a dutiful and resourceful manager who did what he could to meet the needs of the young musicians in his bands. Freiberg remembered that when he and his Quicksilver bandmates were living together in a house in Mill Valley, they informed him of their desire to move onto a farm in the country with a barn where they could rehearse. Mr. Polte wasted no time making that wish come true. “Within a week and a half, we were living on an old dairy farm in Olema,” Freiberg recalled, chuckling. “He really cared about making sure everybody was taken care of.” Diane Vitalich of Novato, drummer for the Ace of Cups, recalled that when she and her bandmates needed transportation, Mr. Polte went to an auction of state vehicles at San Quentin and bought cars for all of them. “He bought us five 1963 Dodge Darts,” she said. “They were all blue and all looked the same.” During this time, Mr. Polte started Westpole, a booking agency that handled Big Brother and the Holding Company with Janis Joplin, the Sons of Champlin and other seminal Bay Area rock groups. He’s also credited with inspiring the name of the band Electric Flag, a short-lived supergroup formed by Bloomfield, Gravenites, keyboardist Barry Goldberg, bassist Harvey Brooks and drummer Buddy Miles. According to Gravenites, Quicksilver had somehow come into possession of a light-up electric flag after a gig at a veterans hall. “He brought it over to where we were all living and rehearsing in Tam Valley,” he recalled. “We plugged it in and it lit up and started waving. We said, ‘Hey, look at that. Let’s call ourselves the Electric Flag.’” Eventually, Mr. Polte escaped from the hard living and tumult of the music business, spending time on a remote lodge in the New Mexico wilderness owned by Frank Werber, the charismatic manager of the Kingston Trio and owner of the Trident, a legendary Sausalito restaurant. Through it all, he never lost the values that defined the ‘60s generation in San Francisco. “All the altruistic thinking that came out of that era he agreed with a thousand percent,” Gravenites said. “He remained a firm defender of all the idealism from those years.” In addition to his wife, Mr. Polte is survived by two daughters, Pamela Polte of Sutter Creek, Amador County, and Patti Ann Lindecker of Chicago; two sons, Thomas Polte of Chicago and Jeremy Polte of Dunsmuir, Siskiyou County, and two sisters, Marilyn McMinn and Nancy Brunanchon of Pine Grove, Amador County. A private memorial service is being planned.

Donahue believes that even though the concert never happened, this was a positive experience for the San Francisco community. He states that: "We also felt that a great deal of the good things that have come out of the artistic community in this country have originated in San Francisco. That it's a starting point. Thay may sound chauvanistic but I also think it's the truth." Ends with brief comments from another spokesman, who refers to the "unecessary and ... unwarranted paranoia" that the Wild West project had to deal with. It is worth noting that Donahue was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996 as a non-peformer, one of only three disc jockeys to receive that honor to date (2011).

I am still in touch with QSM guitarist Gary Duncan, sending my condolences Gary! - JH" Nick Gravenites Nick Gravenites - Nick's bio "Biography According to author and pop music critic Joel Selvin, Gravenites is "the original San Francisco connection for the Chicago crowd." Gravenites is credited as a "musical handyman" helping such San Francisco bands as Quicksilver Messenger Service and Janis Joplin's first solo group, the Kosmic Blues Band. Gravenites also worked extensively with John Cipollina after producing the first Quicksilver Messenger Service album. He and Cipollina formed the Nick Gravenites–John Cipollina Band which toured a lot in Europe. Gravenites was also a songwriter for the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, which consisted of Elvin Bishop, Paul Butterfield, and Michael Bloomfield, then formed The Electric Flag with Butterfield guitarist Mike Bloomfield. Gravenites is also responsible for writing the score for The Trip, produced the music for the movie Steelyard Blues. He produced the pop hit "One Toke Over the Line" for Brewer & Shipley and the album Right Place, Wrong Time for Otis Rush, for which he was nominated for a Grammy Award. Together with John Kahn, Gravenites produced the album 'Not mellowed with Age' by Southern Comfort. Over the years, Gravenites would often use pianist Pete Sears in his band "Animal Mind", including on his 1980 Blue Star album on which Sears played keyboards and bass. They also played together in front of 100,000 people on Earth Day 1990 at Crissy Field, San Francisco. Sears also joined him for a tour of Greece. He still performs live in northern California. Gravenites was inducted to the Blues Hall of Fame in 2003 for his song "Born In Chicago". He recently toured with the Chicago Blues Reunion and a new Electric Flag Band." **Excerpted from Huffington Post about Julius Karpen: " Barry Melton, lead guitarist for Country Joe & the Fish, was quoted: “Chet was the antithesis of Bill Graham. Chet didn’t really care about money. The music always came first.” Julius Karpen, who later managed Big Brother, was present when Hart phoned Melton. To Karpen, it sounded like “bitching between friends.” He asked Melton, “Did Mickey call you to complain about that quote?” Melton replied, “Oh, that’s Mickey. If you’re friends with Mickey, you’re always sparring with Mickey.” The most poetic eulogy for Chet was written by Allen Cohen, who had been the editor of the first psychedelic underground paper, the San Francisco Oracle: “...There were darkened skied and a storm about to strike. The women cried and danced in the streets while the good old boys were drinkin’ whiskey and rye down by the dock of the Bay. The day Chet Helms died Golden Gate Park was filled with mourners all with flowers in their hair. Big Brother played on all seven hills while Janis smiled from the clouds singing you got a piece of my heart....” Only, Cohen himself was already dead. He had written that eulogy in January 2000, when there was a false report in the Chronicle that Chet had died. Chet decided to have a combination wake and resurrection. He hired a hearse and a coffin and invited 200 guests. He was driven up to the Gold Coast Restaurant. The coffin was rolled into the restaurant and opened. Chet lay there with flowers and a cell phone on his chest. All of a sudden, the phone rang. Chet rose to answer it, then walked through the crowd, toasting the mourners and greeting the cameras."
