The Maude Meuller Incident - Columbus

 1968 was the year of  many things, Vietnam still raging, Martin Luther King and  Bobby Kennedy assassinated, "Hair" opened, and Iron Butterfly released "In-a-gadda-da-vida".
Guess what band brought "In-a-gadda-da-vida" to Columbus, all glorious 18 minutes of it? Yep, The Maude Meuller Incident. Complete with the requisite color wheel - strobe lights - and dry ice!

Shown in the surviving flyer for the band (thanks Mike!):

Mike Fox
Rick Thompson
Jeff Wilhite

All were previously of the Bushmen presented earlier.

 While looking thru the notes, I noticed a 1964 ad for Ricky Thompson and a local (still there!) music center.Tom Pickett's is still operating and a nice place to visit for your guitar needs, and I have many!
