Saturday I went to a Procol Harum concert in San Diego. Since I knew where the 'green rooms' were for the artists, I took my poster of their 1972 concert with me and stood within view of his room.
He noticed it and came out for a close inspection. I told him my story about attending the concert at the end of my three month European hitchhiking adventure---an act which caused me to miss my flight home but was well worth it.
His entourage enjoyed seeing this bit of memorabilia and one of them snapped this photo and e-mailed it to me. Mr. Brooker was gracious, considering he looked as if he just got up from a nap, and signed the glass for me.
Procol Harum and Pink Floyd will always be my favorite groups. A Whiter Shade of Pale lives in my soul.
