Procol Harum • Njårdhallen, Oslo, 30 October 1974

'Gary Gold' on guitar


Not many Procol fans have had the pleasure of seeing Gary Brooker play guitar on stage ... he used to produce a National for Souvenir of London with Procol Harum, and of course he's played various guitars, mostly acoustic, on stage with No Stiletto Shoes.

On the 1974 Procol tour, however, he used to play electric guitar on Monsieur R Monde, and was occasionally announced (it was the heyday of once-popular Gary Glitter, of course) as 'Gary Gold'. [To find out who played the piano on these occasions, read the account of A Dream in Ev'ry Home on this page]

A second picture has come to light of Gary Gold in action, kindly sent to BtP by the photographer, Ragnar Søberg from Elverum. In the background, of course, is bass-player Alan Cartwright.
