Well, the Lindy Opera House was on Wilshire Blvd. (I looked it up), so probably close.

I saw Billy Mundi, when he was in the band Rhinoceros. As Billy sat behind his drum kit, he did
a few "snorks" into his mic and smiled. The band was pretty decent. They were opening for Vanilla
Fudge. The Fudge had just released the "Near The Beginning" album. I'm guessing this was the summer of 1969.

LOL! :mrgreen: Amazingly, I didn't hear that. I had front row seats and the Fudge were
extremely LOUD. I was impressed with Rhinoceros and bought their debut LP the next day.

You know that was a Mothers reference, right? I believe it is somewhere in the liner notes of the YCDTOSA series, but I can't pin it down. Anyone?

I remember Frank mentioning this once during a Larry King radio interview too when he was talking to a caller who may have been at that show. The crowd was shouting “You’se guys stink, bring on the Fudge” at the Mothers who were opening for the Vanilla Fudge.
