Roger Chapman (in Oldie-Markt, circa 1990): “I just made one of my numbers with the microphone stand, when Bill Graham appeared to see the last part of the show. Obviously he was shocked when he saw how I dealt with the microphone; it was absolutely unusual and he was totally startled. So he ran down the corridor and pulled down all of our posters. Well, we understood one another afterwards in spite of that, and we did several concerts for Graham later, but I think several other concert organizers and other people in the music business followed Bill’s example because he was an important person in the business, and expelled us.”
