Steve Luongo “Who is this Joe Berger?” Jon Hammond: I was there in the station with my Sony D-7 recorder, Luongo kept dodging the question
saying “Oh we can’t talk about him right now.” That only inflamed Howard’s curiosity even more.
The truth of the story is that Joe Berger is the man who not only introduced John Entwistle to Rat Race Choir band which was already dysfunctional,
he convinced John to come to Chicago Summer The NAMM Show in 1987 to play a set with them at the Vic Theatre with a little bit of help from myself
Jon Hammond as documentarian for my cable TV program on MCTV – John Entwistle was already a long-time friend of Joe Berger and we filmed
him doing an epic jam in Frankfurt Germany together with Zak Starkey on drums, Joe Berger guitar, John Entwistle bass and special guests
Jack Bruce, Steve Stevens at the Soundcheck party in Dorian Gray nightclub inside the Frankfurt Airport on the night of February 2, 1987
musikmesse Party as seen on my TV show The Jon Hammond Show. Fast forward to November ’87, here we are at The Stone Pony
Joe Berger is at the mixing console, I am filming (Jon Hammond) with a special Sony industrial camera GCS-1 like film, I went all over the
world with my GCS-1 cameras documenting musical history for cable access broadcast, we are now in our 33rd year on MNN TV Channel 1 Manhattan Neighborhood Network
and streaming worldwide. It’s time to set the record straight on who Joe Berger2 is and how he put John Entwistle together with this group
which was already broken up and somehow between Joe Berger and John Entwistle they managed to keep them together enough to play
a short tour, even though they were fighting like babies off the stage (also on camera but I prefer not to show it) Mark Hitt did a fantastic job
on the guitar, Jack Hotop keyboards also outstanding, Steve Luongo played drums and was self-appointed tour manager which caused a lot of
problems in my humble opinion – Dave Chmela vocalist and Luongo are not even on speaking terms, a lot of things went wrong but this
documentary footage was early in the tour – the answer to Howard Stern’s question “Who is this Joe Berger” is right here folks!
Rock ’n Roll history, Bill Curbishly attended the K-Rock Blood Drive gig that kicked it off at The Bottom Line, after reporting back to Pete Townshend
about the gigs with John Entwistle and Rat Race Choir thanks to Joe Berger, Pete Townshend sent a telegram to John Entwistle​, John told me
that Peter said for him to stop playing with the American blokes or there would never be a Who reunion. A few weeks later The Who John Entwistle,
Pete Townshend and Roger Daltry went in to rehearsals and a subsequent reunion tour after a period of being on non-speaking terms.
So thanks to Joe Berger​ and in part myself after we brought the films to England and delivered them to John Entwistle at his London house
from the Vic Theatre gig and Dorian Gray Nightclub Frankfurt, John felt confident enough to fly over to New York and make the tour, this footage is directly out of
my camera folks, enjoy it and keep the Spirit of the late great John Entwistle who very sadly passed away on June 27, 2002 in Las Vegas NV
at the Hard Rock Hotel, RIP John Entwistle – sincerely, Jon Hammond​ – Next segment: Mike Vax Takes it Up an Octave at JEN 2016 Louisville Louisville, Kentucky!

Jazz ist spielerischer Umgang mit Musik
NDR Bigband Saxofonist Lutz Büchner im Interview
Lutz Büchner, Saxofon und Klarinette, hat sich mit 16 Jahren das Jazz-Virus eingefangen.
Sie scheinen zu den Musikern zu gehören, die sich sehr geradlinig auf Jazz fokussieren. Oder trügt dieser Eindruck?

Lutz Büchner: Das tut er nicht! Ich habe mit 16 angefangen, mich für Jazz zu begeistern. Damals wurde ich von meinen Eltern auf ein Konzert mitgenommen, und dann hat sich das so nach und nach ergeben. Ich habe angefangen, mir viele Platten zu kaufen und weil ich aus Bremen komme, hatte ich das Glück, dort eine ältere Generation von Jazz-Musikern kennenzulernen: Ed Kröger und Uli Beckerhoff zum Beispiel. Die konnten mir natürlich tolle Plattentipps geben, so dass ich damals Miles Davis rauf und runter gehört habe und so immer weiter eingestiegen bin.

Die konnten mir natürlich tolle Plattentipps geben, so dass ich damals Miles Davis rauf und runter gehört habe und so immer weiter eingestiegen bin.

Biografisches in Kürze
Jahrgang 1968, aufgewachsen in Bremen. Lutz Büchner lebt heute in Hamburg.

Instrumente: Saxofone, Klarinetten, Flöten

Er studierte bei Herb Geller und spielte in den Bands von Joe Gallardo und der dänischen Drummer-Legende Alex Riel. Er war beteiligt bei Projekten mit Detlev Beier, Ed Kröger, Wolfgang Schlüter, Lucas Lindholm, beim hr, der WDR Big Band und dem Metropol Orchestra Amsterdam. Mit seinem eigenen Quartett nahm er die viel beachtete CD “Ring” mit Danny Gottlieb am Schlagzeug auf.

Seit 1994 ist Lutz Büchner festes Mitglied der NDR Bigband.
Was faszinierte Sie so am Jazz?

Büchner: Ich glaube, einfach die Tatsache, dass da improvisiert wird. Ich hatte davor klassischen Klarinettenunterricht und bin da immer wieder an meine Grenzen gestoßen. Beispielsweise wenn ich im Unterricht Etüden vorspielen musste und irgendwo auf der zweiten Seite eine damals für mich noch anspruchsvolle Stelle kam – da habe ich dann schon lange vor dieser Stelle darüber nachgedacht, dass sie gleich kommt und dadurch total unkonzentriert gespielt.

Durch den Jazz habe ich einen viel spielerischeren Umgang mit der Musik gefunden. Dadurch, dass ich improvisiere und mir selbst aussuchen kann, was ich wann spiele, finde ich viel besser in einen musikalischen Fluss. Das ist bis heute mein vorrangiges Ziel: ganz im Moment zu spielen.

Was schätzen Sie an der Arbeit in der NDR Bigband?
Büchner: Grundsätzlich die Herausforderung! Dadurch habe ich sehr viel gelernt, auch durch das Spielen mit unterschiedlichen Musikern, wenn wir Gäste haben.

Und dann passiert es auch hin und wieder, dass wir mit Arrangeuren zusammenarbeiten dürfen, die uns als Solisten sehr gut im Blick haben, und dann in meinem Fall nicht einfach eine Stimme für das Zweite Tenorsaxofon schreiben, sondern für Lutz Büchner. Wenn das passiert, dann sind das wirklich die tollsten Konzerte, weil dann die eigentliche Stärke dieser Bigband zum Tragen kommt: ihre Solisten, die alle außerordentlich gut sind, dabei aber aus völlig unterschiedlichen stilistischen Richtungen kommen. Das gibt der Band erst ihre eigene Farbe.

Würden Sie also die Arrangeure dazu einladen, sich von der NDR Bigband inspirieren zu lassen?

Büchner: Dazu ein Beispiel: Einer von meinen Lieblingsarrangeuren ist Michael Gibbs, der sehr von Gil Evans geprägt ist, einem der wichtigsten Arrangeure im modernen Bigband-Jazz. Und der wiederum – so hat mir Michael Gibbs einmal erzählt – ist manchmal zu den Aufnahme-Sessions seiner Projekte gekommen und hatte lediglich Skizzen der Stücke dabei, keine fertigen Partituren. Stattdessen hat er mit der Band ausprobiert, wer worüber am besten spielen kann. Dann hat er die Musiker zum Kaffee-Trinken geschickt und das Arrangement fertiggeschrieben.

Er hat sich also davon beeinflussen lassen, welche Farben die Solisten beisteuern können. Von dieser Arbeitsweise profitieren am Ende alle: Arrangeur, Musiker und nicht zuletzt das Publikum.

Wie viele Ihrer Kollegen haben Sie der NDR Bigband ja auch schon eigene Kompositionen vorgelegt. Wie fühlt es sich an, auf einmal selbst in der Rolle des Arrangeurs zu sein?

Büchner: Das ist auf jeden Fall etwas Besonderes! Ich bin nicht der allerschnellste Schreiber und habe also wochenlang am Klavier und am Computer gesessen und versucht, mir vorzustellen, wie das klingt, wenn die Bigband das Stück spielt. Und wenn die Musiker dann das umsetzen, was man sich so lange überlegt hat, ist das ganz toll, weil es immer viel wärmer und lebendiger klingt, als man sich das vorher hätte träumen lassen. Das ist unheimlich spannend, und dieser Moment, wenn die Aufnahmen dann fertig sind und man sie auch noch selbst gut findet, der ist wirklich einzigartig.

Saturday, March 12, 2016: Folks, I am really in shock from hearing news of the unexpected and very sad death of my good friend Lutz Büchner! I really didn’t want to say it on the internet after receiving the horrible news in communications with our mutual good friend and fellow musician / bandmate Heinz Lichius. This is so hard to get my head around and accept it but I know it’s true that Lutz suffered a fatal heart attack while on tour in Tokyo Japan with his beloved NDR-bigband with Peter Erskine on the band – I can see Lutz’ smile and hear his voice and music in my mind like it was yesterday – and we spoke and played together so many times. So now I see the news releases are already out on the news FEEDS from the NDR, Hamburger Abendblatt etc. and a few too-early mentions on the Facebook, so I know it’s time to write a few words for those of you who might not know of Lutz Büchner, as follows: As Joe Gallardo the great trombonist and long-time colleague of Lutz’ said in email to me last night: “As you well know, Lutz was first of all a great human being and secondly, he was a masterful player. Lutz was my brother. We will all miss him.” – The very first time I met Lutz was in 1995 on a rainy night in Hamburg Eimsbüttel at the Thursday night weekly jazz session in Jazzclub Birdland – I had heard him the week before and pushed my Hammond organ on the wheels through the rain to the club and got there real early, Hr. Reichert the owner opened up the club and I was telling Mr. Reichert I came the week before but didn’t get to play so “early bird gets the worm…and maybe I’ll get to play with Lutz Büchner!” – well we did it and by good luck my friend Joris Dudli the great drummer was there – it was magic from the first hit. That’s where it started, I was living in Hamburg to play music and write tunes – like so many musicians following in the footsteps of The Beatles, by invitation of my sponsor Knut Benzner journalist moderator on the NDR. From then on together with main man Heinz Lichius drums who I had met just before when Heinz came over to meet me one afternoon – Heinz had recommended to check out Lutz, one of the finest rising musicians on the Hamburg scene. We had a lot of great times together on the bandstand and off from that time on – we played in Hamburg and his hometown of Bremen – turned out to be that Lutz was a real life jazz angel who saved my life at least twice, one time involving bringing me to the hospital / krankenhaus and translating to me what they were about to do to me – we escaped out the side door and the doctor came to our gig that night! I met Lutz’ Mom and Dad beautiful people when they came to hear us play in Bremen at Studio club April 7, 1998 – and most recently our last gigs together with my favorite musicians Michael Leuschner, (Heinz Lichius of course) “Fiete” Ernst-Friedrich Fiete Felsch NDR horn section brothers along with Joe Berger guitar, probably best gig of my life – Lutz was so happy to have found his love with his wife Bettina and he was always crazy about his son Asmus and his step daughters by Bettina, the happiest I have ever seen him, he glowed in the dark he had that much joy! — Back in 2005 I had an idea, I said to my long-time girlfriend Jennifer: Lutz is one of the greatest saxophonists I ever heard, I want to feature him on a CD release, he could be making a great record every day! I couldn’t believe that he didn’t have any feature albums out at that point – so I discussed it with Knut Benzner and we all co-produced a recording session for this purpose in the famous Studio 1 at NDR, the NDR SESSIONS Projekt was born, with the addition of “Joe G” / Joe Gallardo on trombone and Heinz Lichius and myself, Rudolf Grosser at the controls big SSL console, we started playing in the morning and I played through the magic bass amp belonging to Lucas Lindholm – the boys took one long coffee break and other than that we recorded tunes all day long – I am so grateful that I’ll always have this recording date together with Lutz, of course later on Lutz came out with more records – but this one for me is my special keepsake that went down with the blessings of NDR with the help of Knut Benzner and Axel Dürr. So many stories I can tell you, but most importantly everybody loved Lutz, I know there are a lot of tears flowing now around Hamburg and Bremen, my heart goes out to Lutz’ Family, Friends and Musicians music brothers and sisters! The 2nd to the last time we played together, I hadn’t seen Lutz for a while and he told me about a real miracle of survival when he was driving on the autobahn with Bettina and the kinder all his happy Family in the car, I think there was ice on the road – a car slammed in to the back of his car demolishing the car, but Lutz’ horns were in the trunk – they all got crushed but it saved his Family! They were all shaken up but OK – the lucky star was shining over them, and even though Lutz is not with us physically anymore, his lucky star will always be shining – he was competely dedicated to the NDR-bigband family of musicians and his own Family – always a huge inspiration to me as a person and master musician, rest in peace my very special good friend Lutz Büchner – my deepest and most sincere condolences go out to Lutz’ Mom and Dad and Bettina and his son Asmus and step children by Bettina – all the folks who know and love Lutz, sincerely, Jon Hammond

John Entwistle’s Wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Entwistle John Alec Entwistle (9 October 1944 – 27 June 2002) was an
English musician, songwriter, singer, film and music producer, who was
best known as the original bass guitarist for the English rock band The Who.
He was the only member of the band to have formal musical training. His
aggressive lead sound influenced many rock bass players.[1][2] He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of The Who in 1990.

Entwistle’s instrumental approach used pentatonic lead lines, and a then-unusual treble-rich sound (“full treble, full volume”) created by roundwound RotoSound
steel bass strings. He was nicknamed “The Ox” and “Thunderfingers,” the
latter because his digits became a blur across the four-string
fretboard.[3] In 2011, he was voted the greatest bassist of all time in a Rolling Stone reader’s poll.[4]
According to the The Biography Channel, Entwistle is considered by many
to be the best bass guitarist that ever lived, and considered to have
done for the bass what Jimi Hendrix did for the guitar.

John Alec Entwistle was born on 9 October 1944 in Chiswick, a suburb of London.[6] He was an only child. His father, Herbert, played trumpet[7] and his mother, Maud (29 November 1922 – 4 March 2011)[citation needed], played piano.[8] His parents’ marriage failed soon after he was born, and he was mostly raised by his mother at his grandparents house in South Acton.[9] Divorce was uncommon in the 1940s, and this contributed to Entwistle becoming reserved and socialising little.[8]

His musical career began aged 7, when he started piano lessons. He
did not enjoy the experience and after joining Acton County Grammar
School aged 11, switched to the trumpet,[8] moving to French horn when he joined the Middlesex School’s Symphony Orchestra.[9] He met Pete Townshend in the second year of school, and the two formed a trad jazz band, The Confederates. The group only played one gig together, before they decided that rock ‘n’ roll was a more attractive prospect.[7]
Entwistle, in particular, was having difficulty hearing his trumpet
with bands, and decided to switch to playing guitar, but due to his
large fingers, and also his fondness for the low guitar tones of Duane Eddy, he decided to take up the bass.[10] He made his own instrument at home, and soon attracted the attention of Roger Daltrey,
who had been the year above Entwistle at Acton County, but had since
left to work in sheet metal. Daltrey was aware of Entwistle from school,
and asked him to join as bassist for his band, The Detours..

Interview: Detlef Kinsler – http://journal-frankfurt.de/funkyjazz

Nomen est omen. Der Mann heißt Hammond und spielt eine Hammond. Der Organist aus New York freut sich auf Frankfurt und lädt zur Musikmesse Warm Up Party am 9.4. in den Jazzkeller ein.
JOURNAL FRANKFURT: Was war für Sie zuerst da – die Frankfurter Musikmesse oder Auftritte im Jazzkeller?
Jon Hammond: Die Musikmesse. Ich kam 1987 zum ersten Mal nach Frankfurt, zusammen mit Joe Berger, der auf der Messe für Engl Amplifiers spielte. Wir flogen mit der Lufthansa ein und teilten uns ein Zimmer im berühmten Prinz Otto Hotel am Hauptbahnhof. Schon in der ersten Nacht stellte mir Joe den großen John Entwistle, den Bassisten von The Who vor. Es wurde eine lange Nacht, in der wir Cognac tranken und Erdnüsse knabberten in eiern Suite des Marriott Hotels. Ich habe Joe bei einer Session mit John und Ringo Starrs Sohn Zak Starkey im Dorian Grey Club gefilmt bei einer Soundcheck Party. In den ersten paar Jahren spielte ich nicht oft live weil ich noch keine transportierbare Hammond Orgel hatte vor 1991 als ich den Prototyp einer XB-2 Hammond Orgel bekam mit der ich dann um die Welt reiste. Hauptsächliche dokumenierte ich aber die Messe für meine Cable TV Show in New York, die inzwischen im 29. Jahr als The Jon Hammond Show — Music, Travel and Soft News präsentiert. Die harten Nachrichten überlasse ich CNN und den großen Networks (lacht). Vom ersten Jahr an fühlten wir uns der Musikmesse eng verbunden, haben seitdem eine tolle Zeit hier, kommen jedes Jahr wieder bis wir kleine, alte Männer sind.

Das Jazzkeller-Konzert am Vorabend der Musikmesse ist zu einer netten Tradition geworden – wie kam es dazu, was bedeutet es Ihnen und wir werden Sie dieses Jahr diesen Abend im Jazzkeller zelebrieren?
Ab 1991 lernte ich mehr und mehr Musikmesse-Menschen kennen und die mich und auch einiges von meiner Musik. Einige von ihnen ermunterten mich, doch auch für Auftritte nach Deutschland zu kommen weil es hier doch ein Interesse an Hammond-Orgel-Groove-Music gab. Mit der schon erwähnten, kleinen, kompakten aber sehr kraftvollen Orgel war das alles möglich. Zudem machte ich in New York gerade eine schwere Zeit durch, mein Vater war gestorben und ich hatte das Gefühl, einige Veränderungen könnten meinem Leben gut tun. Also kam ich nach Frankfurt mit meiner XB-2, allerdings mit einem Rückflugticket falls etwas schief gehen würde. Ich rief viele Musiker an, ließ sie wissen, ich bin jetzt da, lasst uns zusammen spielen. Das war für mich der Anfang einer langen, sehr speziellen Beziehung, vor allem zum Frankfurter Publikum nach ersten kleinen erfolgen im Jazzkeller und einer kurzen Auftritt im Hessen Report im Fernsehen. Beatrix Rief verdanke ich dieses “lucky light on me”, eine tolle Erfahrung. Seitdem nenne ich Frankfurt “My Good Luck City” und im Jazzkeller begann auch alles für mich als Musiker. Deshalb liegt mir der Club auch so nah am Herzen, deshalb hatte ich auch die Idee, meine “Musikmesse Warm Up Party” dort zu realisieren, immer in der Nacht bevor die Messe startet was zu einer schönen Tradition wurde. Im ersten Jahr, in dem ich dann auch ein wenig Sponsoring von Philip Morris bekam, konnte ich damit einige Flugtickets für befreundete Musik bezahlen. Darüber war ich sehr glücklich. Dabei rauche ich selbst gar nicht.

Wie würden Sie Ihr persönliches Verhältnis zu Deutschland und Frankfurt beschrieben?
Lassen Sie es mich so sagen: ich liebe Frankfurt und die Frankfurter waren immer gut zu mir in all den Jahren. Ich könnte ein ganzes Buch über die Zeit schreiben, in der ich in Bornheim wohnte und Nacht für Nacht in der alten Jazzkneipe in der Berliner Straße auftrat. Das war der Treffpunkt, wo auch die Musiker der HR Bigband hinkamen und es gab eine generöse Chefin in der kleinen Kneipe. Auch Regine Dobberschütz und Eugen Hahn im Jazzkeller waren wahre Jazzengel für mich, die mir so vieles ermöglichten in der Zeit. Wir konnten auch in den Studios von AFN Radio spielen, waren die einzigen Musiker, die das – mit einer Sondergenehmigung des US Militärs – durften. Für ein wenig Promotion für die Musikmesse. Wir nannten das Programm für die AFN “Profile TV “-Show “Sound Police”. Wir hatten viel Spaß. Kein Wunder also, dass ich Frankfurt als my home away from home begreife und ich mich jedes Mal wieder freue zur Musikmesse zu reisen, in diesem Jahr übrigens zum 27. Mal in Folge. Und ich bin diesmal besonders aufgeregt, heim nach Frankfurt zu kommen weil ich gerade 60 Jahre alt geworden bin.

Wer wird in diesem Jahr zum Gelingen des Konzertes mit teils komponierter, teils improvisierter Musik, so nehme ich an, beitragen und was für einen Sound wird die Band präsentieren?
Ich habe etwa 90% der Kompositionen geschrieben, die wir spielen werden. Es ist die Musik, die man auch in meiner New Yorker TV-Show hören kann und die mich mehrmals um die Welt getragen hat. Meinen Stil nenne ich “Swinging Funky Jazz and Blues” und featurert die ganz wunderbaren Solisten in meine Band: Tony Lakatos, den großen ungarischen Tenorsaxophonisten, der auch Mitglied in der hr Bigband ist, dann meinen alten Freund Giovanni Gulino, diesen tollen Schlagzeuger, der schon für fast alle Großen der Szene getrommelt hat. Ich liebe diese Jungs. Als Gitarrist ist mein alten Freund und Kollege Joe Berger dabei, den man auch als The Berger-Meister kennt. Auf diese Formation bin ich wirklich stolz.

Werden Sie im Jazzkeller wieder eine Hammond Orgel spielen?
Ja, sicher, das neueste Modell, eine Sk1, die exakt so klingt wie die legendäre B3. Ich liebe sie. Und sie wiegt nur noch sieben Kilo (Anm. des Autors: Das Original, ein echtes Möbel mit viel Holz, mussten immer zwei Menschen mit viel Muskelkraft die Treppen rauf und runter hieven), ein deutliches Indiz, dass wir in der Zukunft angekommen sind. Da stecken viele Jahre Forschung und Entwicklung drin, auch Bühnenerprobungen. Ich ziehe den Hut vor den Ingenieuren von Suzuki, ein unverwüstliches Instrument erschaffen zu haben. Und das unterziehe ich jetzt einen echten Härttest (lacht).

John Entwistle Stone Pony – Jon Hammond: Howard Stern “Who is this Joe Berger?”

March 5, 2016

Asbury Park, NJ, The Stone Pony — Monday November 16, 1987: Howard Stern on his morning show on WXRK K-Rock 92.3 FM repeatedly asking
Steve Luongo “Who is this Joe Berger?” Jon Hammond: I was there in the station with my Sony D-7 recorder, Luongo kept dodging the question
saying “Oh we can’t talk about him right now.” That only inflamed Howard’s curiosity even more.
The truth of the story is that Joe Berger is the man who not only introduced John Entwistle to Rat Race Choir band which was already dysfunctional,
he convinced John to come to Chicago Summer The NAMM Show in 1987 to play a set with them at the Vic Theatre with a little bit of help from myself
Jon Hammond as documentarian for my cable TV program on MCTV – John Entwistle was already a long-time friend of Joe Berger and we filmed
him doing an epic jam in Frankfurt Germany together with Zak Starkey on drums, Joe Berger guitar, John Entwistle bass and special guests
Jack Bruce, Steve Stevens at the Soundcheck party in Dorian Gray nightclub inside the Frankfurt Airport on the night of February 2, 1987
musikmesse Party as seen on my TV show The Jon Hammond Show. Fast forward to November ’87, here we are at The Stone Pony
Joe Berger is at the mixing console, I am filming (Jon Hammond) with a special Sony industrial camera GCS-1 like film, I went all over the
world with my GCS-1 cameras documenting musical history for cable access broadcast, we are now in our 33rd year on MNN TV Channel 1 Manhattan Neighborhood Network
and streaming worldwide. It’s time to set the record straight on who Joe Berger2 is and how he put John Entwistle together with this group
which was already broken up and somehow between Joe Berger and John Entwistle they managed to keep them together enough to play
a short tour, even though they were fighting like babies off the stage (also on camera but I prefer not to show it) Mark Hitt did a fantastic job
on the guitar, Jack Hotop keyboards also outstanding, Steve Luongo played drums and was self-appointed tour manager which caused a lot of
problems in my humble opinion – Dave Chmela vocalist and Luongo are not even on speaking terms, a lot of things went wrong but this
documentary footage was early in the tour – the answer to Howard Stern’s question “Who is this Joe Berger” is right here folks!
Rock ’n Roll history, Bill Curbishly attended the K-Rock Blood Drive gig that kicked it off at The Bottom Line, after reporting back to Pete Townshend
about the gigs with John Entwistle and Rat Race Choir thanks to Joe Berger, Pete Townshend sent a telegram to John Entwistle, John told me
that Peter said for him to stop playing with the American blokes or there would never be a Who reunion. A few weeks later The Who John Entwistle,
Pete Townshend and Roger Daltry went in to rehearsals and a subsequent reunion tour after a period of being on non-speaking terms.
So thanks to Joe Berger and in part myself after we brought the films to England and delivered them to John Entwistle at his London house
from the Vic Theatre gig and Dorian Gray Nightclub Frankfurt, John felt confident enough to fly over to New York and make the tour, this footage is directly out of
my camera folks, enjoy it and keep the Spirit of the late great John Entwistle who very sadly passed away on June 27, 2002 in Las Vegas NV
at the Hard Rock Hotel, RIP John Entwistle – sincerely, Jon Hammond http://www.HammondCast.com ©JON HAMMOND International

John Entwistle https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Entwistle

John Alec Entwistle (9 October 1944 – 27 June 2002) was an English musician, songwriter, singer, film and music producer, who was best known as the original bass guitarist for the English rock band The Who. He was the only member of the band to have formal musical training. His aggressive lead sound influenced many rock bass players.[1][2] He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of The Who in 1990.

Entwistle’s instrumental approach used pentatonic lead lines, and a then-unusual treble-rich sound (“full treble, full volume”) created by roundwound RotoSound steel bass strings. He was nicknamed “The Ox” and “Thunderfingers,” the latter because his digits became a blur across the four-string fretboard.[3] In 2011, he was voted the greatest bassist of all time in a Rolling Stone reader’s poll.[4] According to the The Biography Channel, Entwistle is considered by many to be the best bass guitarist that ever lived, and considered to have done for the bass what Jimi Hendrix did for the guitar.

John Alec Entwistle was born on 9 October 1944 in Chiswick, a suburb of London.[6] He was an only child. His father, Herbert, played trumpet[7] and his mother, Maud (29 November 1922 – 4 March 2011)[citation needed], played piano.[8] His parents’ marriage failed soon after he was born, and he was mostly raised by his mother at his grandparents house in South Acton.[9] Divorce was uncommon in the 1940s, and this contributed to Entwistle becoming reserved and socialising little.[8]

His musical career began aged 7, when he started piano lessons. He did not enjoy the experience and after joining Acton County Grammar School aged 11, switched to the trumpet,[8] moving to French horn when he joined the Middlesex School’s Symphony Orchestra.[9] He met Pete Townshend in the second year of school, and the two formed a trad jazz band, The Confederates. The group only played one gig together, before they decided that rock ‘n’ roll was a more attractive prospect.[7] Entwistle, in particular, was having difficulty hearing his trumpet with bands, and decided to switch to playing guitar, but due to his large fingers, and also his fondness for the low guitar tones of Duane Eddy, he decided to take up the bass.[10] He made his own instrument at home, and soon attracted the attention of Roger Daltrey, who had been the year above Entwistle at Acton County, but had since left to work in sheet metal. Daltrey was aware of Entwistle from school, and asked him to join as bassist for his band, The Detours…

Folks, I will be the #1 voter today at my polling place – got here 5AM, early shot so you know I am not messing around. In less than 45 minutes I’m going to be pulling the lever for President Obama and everybody in my building is also – I don’t know one person who is voting for the other guy. NYPD is on the scene to make sure there won’t be any hanky panky..this is the big day people! – Jon Hammond

#1 Voter at my polling place – photographic proof – Jon Hammond *Note: The scanning machine is scanning my paper ballot at 6:13AM. It is a little bit tricky, supervisor said mine was A-OK and of course I voted for President Obama and V.P. Joe Biden, Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), Democratic early bird voter here in New York City – JH — at Times Square

Get on down to your polling place and vote my fellow Americans! *Note: There is a tricky thing on the ballot – it says “Vote for any four” in one group of four. I had the supervisor come in and sure enough he told me that it is really “Vote for ONE of four” – he told me if I voted for all 4 it would invalidate my ballot. Take care to do it correctly folks.
Jon Hammond — at Times Square

Voting Day 2012 after-the-vote breakfast at the diner with Joe Berger and Jon Hammond the early bird voters in Times Square NYC — with Joe Berger at Theatre Row Diner

Yea’!!! It’s President Obama & V.P. Joe Biden Folks!!! Many congratulations to everybody, we came..we voted..the people have spoken and we have a very good man and very good V.P. back in the Whitehouse for next 4 years – so fantastic!!
I voted for him super-early, they put #1 on my voting card at 6AM after waiting from 5 in the morning while still dark – I hear the people partying in Times Square outside my window – this is a great night and another new beginning, god bless and thanks to all my personal friends who came out and voted for President Obama all over the place, Jon Hammond New York NY USA

LIVE in The Bitter End http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bitter_End

The Bitter End is a nightclub in New York City’s Greenwich Village. It opened its doors in 1961 at 147 Bleecker Street under the auspices of owner Fred Weintraub. The club changed its name to The Other End during the 1970s. However eventually after a few years the owners changed the club’s name back to the more recognizable Bitter End.

History

An earlier club, “The Cock and Bull” operated on the same premises with the same format, in the late 1950s. The poet/comedian Hugh Romney (who later became known as Wavy Gravy) read there.
During the early 1960s the club hosted Folk music “hootenanies” every Tuesday night, featuring many performers who have since become legendary. During its heyday the Bitter End showcased a wide range of talented and legendary musicians, comedians, and theatrical performers.[1]
In 1968 Paul Colby, who began his career as a song plugger for Benny Goodman’s publishing company, and went on to work for Frank Sinatra, Duke Ellington, and Guy Lombardo, became the manager and booking agent at The Bitter End, and in 1974 he purchased it.[2][3]
In the mid 1970s, the club became known as the birthplace of Bob Dylans Rolling Thunder Revue, which featured such names as Joni Mitchell, Roger McGuinn, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Joan Baez, T-Bone Burnett, Ronee Blakely, Mick Ronson, and many other guest stars.
The City of New York bestowed landmark status to the night club on July 23, 1992.

The record is a swinging and funky compilation of original tracks written by Jon Hammond, as well as some anecdotal asides and a guest appearance by Jazzbeaux Collins. Lots of great solos and organ sounds as well as melodies and groove.

Alternative To Clips On Cable by Kim Freeman Billboard Magazine March 19, 1984

NEW YORK—Year-old BackBeat Productions hopes to break new ground in the video medium with it’s first project, “The Jon Hammond Show.” Currently airing on Manhattan Cable’s Channel 3 and San Francisco’s public access Channel 25, the program is a half hour of computer generated graphics synchronized with original jazz-fusion and rock music. Hammond’s voice and his tapping boot are the only human intrusions during the show.
“It’s an alternative to the conceptual and concert footage videos. We’re delivering an art form.” says the show’s host, BackBeat’s co-founder Jon Hammond. The company also functions as a label, and Hammond says the broadcast will be a vehicle to expose artists on the BackBeat roster.
Hammond say’s he’s close to securing slots on public access channels in New Orleans, Baltimore, Chicago, Los Angeles and Boston and plans to recoup investements by syndicating the show to national networks if and when it gains an audience.
His partner in the venture is former Crusaders guitarist Barry Finnerty, who wrote the music for the first program. All songs on the “Jon Hammond Show” feature BackBeat’s studio band of Finnerty, keyboardist Hammond, drummer Steve Ferrone and saxophonist Todd Anderson.

Fall 1987 at Bottom Line NY Blood Drive Concert promoted by K-ROCK 92.3 HOWARD STERN, Meg Griffin announcing.

Note: This is the famous concert that led to The WHO Reunion Tour after WHO’s Manager BILL CURBISHLEY reported back to PETE TONWSHEND who at that time was not on speaking terms with Entwistle how good they sounded. Then Pete sent the famous TELEGRAM to John informing him that if he continued to perform their music with these “American Blokes” then there would never be a reunion. 2 weeks later they were in rehearsal and subsequent Who Reunion Tour. *Note: JOE BERGER introduced JOHN ENTWISTLE to Rat Race Choir Summer NAMM in Chicago then traveled to London with Hammond and the film Master from Vic Theatre performance in Chicago to show Entwistle. They encouraged John to come to America to play together with the very competent original members of RRC known for their WHO covers (Also TULL & ZEP) therefore Joe Berger (and Jon Hammond) are directly responsible for WHO “REUNION 1987” *More Info: © www.HammondCast.com As seen on Jon Hammond Show TV Show (26th year).
