Band Road Stories - too true to be made up...!

Mose Jones band - in the 70's, we had a gig at University of Alabama opening for Dionne Warwick, we had no money and no truck - so a friend of a friend rented us his Van...it "died" somewhere in Not-quite-big-enough-to-have-a-name, Al...so only thing to do was: (1) find and call a wrecker service to tow the van, (2) find a truck rental company and rent a Truck big enough to put the van into, and (3) find a location out in the country where a building had been torn down, leaving a loading dock that we could access with the wrecker and the van - so we could have a place to make the transfer....and in the picture,....that's what we were doing! We made the GIG!! - PRICELESS!
