Snakefinger and his band appearing at Merlyn's Club in Madison, Wisconsin, USA in the early 80's.
A long time fan writes, "If I'm not mistaken, this (audio clip) was from his last-ever concert on US soil. After this, they left for Europe, and he died on that tour.
Somewhere, I have a letter he wrote to a record exec about a possible deal, saying he'd inquire when he got back. He never got back.
I was listening today to the new Sanctuary reissue of "Bongos Over Balham" and there's a live track from April 1974 during which Martin calls him "ol' Snakefinger!" Nice. That's got to be one of the very first instances of that..."
