MC-5 , Touchstone
San Antonio , Texas
Back in the summer of 1970 in San Antonio, Texas at the outdoor Sunken Gardens amphitheatre we (TOUCHSTONE) had the distinct pleasure of playing the MC5 touring show. I was drumming for the Texas regional group TOUCHSTONE. Also on the bill was GINGER VALLEY.
What a show....un-frickin' believable....turned our whole musical universe over, under, sideways and down. All for a whoppin' $2.00.
(Above is the poster from 1970 that I still have in my personal collection from the show in those very "heady" days.)The poster was the artwork of San Antonio's premier graphic artists of the era... John Witherspoon.
Members of TOUCHSTONE were myself (Leon "Pete" Oehlers drums), Louis Siedlecki vocals, Suzy Jenson vocals, David Poehlmen guitars, John Fonte bass, guitars and harps.
Got to know and hang with the boys of MC5.....still a highlight of my professional drumming and music career.
