Topic: What The Flint Journal didn't report in 1967

  Author    Post Post new topic Reply to topic
Flinn's Journal
F L I N T O I D

The next Flinn's Journal in the July issue of The Uncommon Sense will talk about a significant rock concert which took place at Atwood Stadium in August of 1967. One of the musicians at the concert turned 21 that day and his birthday party after the concert was certainly one to remember. Those are the hints. Can you guess what it's about? Again, you will not find it in The Flint Journal back in 1967. I checked the microfilm files in the Flint Public Library to confirm that.

That's correct. You get our applause. The Who was not the headlining act at the concert. They got second billing. Which act played first and which was the headlining act? The winner will get our standing ovation.

It wasnt Moon's birthday he was only 20 so they lied to the hotel manager so they could drink, then he drove a car into the empty pool knocking out two of his front teeth. Doesn't anybody watch TV anymore. How about the time that Jim Morrison pissed on the crowd in Flint?

The drinking age in 1967 was only 18. Why would he have to lie to the Hotel Manager?

it was probably their nature to lie to authority figures...they were the WHO dammit!

talkin' 'bout my generation...


"How about the time that Jim Morrison pissed on the crowd in Flint?"

geez, like that has never happened before!

Morrison was the original incontinent rocker. If he were alive, he'd be the Depends spokesman....
[Morrison]"I've had frequent urination problems for a long time"...

[background of him from a concert pissing on people]

..."But it wasn't until I found Depends that I could finally perform and not worry about causing an electrical problem on-stage or dousing my fans unecessarily...Now they don't have to dress like they were attending a Gallagher show! Thanks Depends!"

come to MLIVE, people there piss on Flint everyday! and some dribble on the crowd here too occasionally.

The last word on Keith Moon's birthday is the marker at Golders Green Crematorium in London, England where Moon's ashes are located. The marker indicates that Keith Moon was 21 when he celebrated his infamous birthday party in Flint. The marker is at http://tinyurl.com/23mv4g
