I'm not sure if I already told you this, but this is also my cousin, Bob "Flash" Gray. He was the assistant to Tom Wilkes. You also had some photos of him at the Fantasy Fair on MT. Tam. internal link internal link internal link internal link

In this shot, guitarist Elvin Bishop is soloing but can only be seen from his waist down. Bugsy Maugh to his left is also seen from the waist down. At the extreme right is one of the cameramen on the Pennybaker crew. Another Pennybaker camera operator can be seen at the foot of the stage. Notice his large 1,000 foot rolls of 16mm film. Also notice the cameramen on the roof opposite.

This shot shows the back stage area for performers, press, and staff. The press/staff office is closest on the left. Jerry Garcia can be seen passing between two women on the left. Further along was the "Cocktails" bar and green room for the performers.

Wonderful photos of the Monetery Pop Festival, Bryan! Very informative to an amateur historian like myself. I see that you took many shots onstage the afternoon of Saturday, June 17, and I'm hoping that you have a few of the Electric Flag who played last that day. I host a website dedicated to Michael Bloomfield, and I'd love to see anything you have of them. By the way, the unknown band in the wide-angle shots is the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, and I believe Jerry Garcia can be seen walking by in one of your backstage shots. Thanks, David D.
