Arthur Brown Glastonbury 2003
From The BBC


Well this year the BBC did a great little feature about Arthur, After all he was the Star of the 1971 Glastonbury Film, though throughout the interview 1971 was mentioned as the first but we all know the real first Glastonbury was in 1970 though very little of that festival remains on film where as 1971 was a full feature as well as a triple album.

So it starts with a clip from the film of various hippy types

Linda Lewis talks about the 71 Festival, also mentions Arthur having his head on fire, but (memory cheat) this may not have happened as it was after all Kingdom Come and not Crazy World
