I found this on eBay. Elvis played two days before the first of the big drill field nights. It was nearly three weeks after the first streak. The photos in the Glom aren’t that great because Larry and co. weren’t given their standard primo spots. Also, I don’t think they were allowed to use flashes. Anyone there?
Roger Mitchell, he of the crucial extra point block a la Punt, Bama, Punt, told me that a “a very good looking girl that a lot of folks knew streaked the Elvis concert.”
It wasn’t the Elvis gig, it was the Beach Boys about a month later. Still…
“She had beautiful eyes.”
While we’re at, maybe someone can me help me out: this Beach Boys show incident is actually one of the more muddled, in terms of details, that I’ve come across (Roger’s recollection is a perfect example). Several people remember a girl. An OA News story mentions a girl, but says she wasn’t a student. But Roger definitely seems to think she was and I’ve actually been given a name (and she was a student) by someone who also holds to the beautiful, popular girl theory.
But let’s not stop there. A few months, someone sent me the following:
I’m a big fan of Tommy Bolin, who played guitar in the James Gang from 1973-1974. Their show got streaked when they played a date at Auburn in April 1974. The following text is from a newspaper clipping:
Police “Arrest” James Gang man by Mistake
James Gang Guitarist Tommy Bolin was in the dressing room in Auburn Alabama,
following a recent set, when police burst into the room, took one
look at Tommy’s half naked body and carted him off.
Apparently, there was a streaker at the concert earlier who was seen to dash backstage. Police chased the streaker and when they came across Tommy getting changed they mistook him for the nude offender! After Tommy explained who he was and what he was doing, the police let him go. The real streaker was never found.
So… not that than any of these scenarios are necessarily mutually exclusive… but, yeah… can anyone help?
