Gong: You See A Lot Of Frenchmen With Berets... But Not Too Many With Fried Eggs On Their Heads

Chris Salewicz, New Musical Express, 21 December 1974

GONG'S HOTEL in the Avenue de Wagram in Paris is directly opposite the Salle Wagram where they are due to gig tonight. It should take about 30 seconds from bedroom to dressing-room. All in all, quite handy.
