The Bloodless Battle Of The Badge: The Press at Monterey Pop

Derek Taylor, World Countdown News, July 1967

THE CLEAN YOUNG man at the window said he was from the Los Angeles Times and there was nothing in his face to say he wasn’t, except that we know he wasn’t because if he had been, Pete Johnson (who was) would have said there was someone else who was as well. Pete Johnson tells you when he is going to tie his shoelace or comb his hair and he wouldn’t have forgotten to mention another LA Times man.
