Terry Reid: Still Making Waves

Mark Leviton, BAM, 15 December 1978

SANTA MONICA — Suppose for a moment you're a member of some English supergroup in the midst of a 30-city tour of the United States when you finally get a day off in Los Angeles. You haven't had a decent beer in weeks, and you're beginning to wonder where a homesick but still sane limey can go, meet the mates, play some darts, and chat up the barkeep. Most likely you'd head out to Ye Old King's Head in Santa Monica, where the decor is as authentically British as the beer, and the accents of fish & chips feel like home.
