No, was on the promotion end of things, lining up the venue help, working the money collection, ticket sales, the boring side for one-of events.What type of work? Were you a roadie? Lighting, sound, etc?
When the shows were on and ticket sales done I'd just mill around the venue and scope out the crowd, check in with security, hang out with some of the working guys you speak of. The wife usually got to deal with the talent when it came to pay them, lots of cash only at the time.
Most shows were little venues like the old Warner in DC
Biggest one we did was Leon and New Riders at RFK, the guys I invited up to work security had more fun than I did. They got to hang with Riders post gig and partook of Cuervo Gold and some other 'stuff'.
Primary gig for me then was nightclub stuff...... think disco ..... a bit hard on this old rock n' roller but it was the thing back then and had to actually earn a living.
