Gigs in the 70's

Do you remember your first time working at a concert?? Mine was in 1973 @ MTSU in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. There was no call, just notes put up on campus that Elton John was coming to the Murphy Center and "strong young men" were needed for the set up and teardown of the event. You would be paid with a T-shirt and free admission to the show!! I had the time of my life and from then on I was hooked!! The rest is history!!
