Bill Justis: The Baldest Rock'n'Roll Star

Charlie Gillett, Record Mirror, 7 March 1970

THE PRESS reception is for Booker T and the MG's. They introduce themselves through the mike on a stage at one end of the room, and then step down into the crowd to talk informally across Whisky and soda glasses. Drummer Al Jackson is first to get to the other end of the room, where he is rewarded by the sight of a familiar figure, bald, medium height, above average girth, impassive face. "Bill Justis!"
