FAVORITE FRED SMITH SAGA
My favorite Fred Smith saga was the very first time he appeared onstage at the Grande Ballroom as “Sonic Smith”. He magically appeared dressed in full super-hero fashion in a black spandex and silver lame costume replete with goggles, flowing cape, and cowled headgear.
John Sinclair was slack-jawed and had a shit conniption fit. The band and the crowd loved it. He was literally the “Man of the Future”, surprising everyone! Now that was funny…
