Marty Katon Drums With Strawberry Alarm Clock 1969

I was hired by the Strawberry Alarm Clock in 1968-69 to cover drums on band tours to Chicago and Lubbock, Texas. I was from the backwoods of Michigan, having been a drummer in blues bars and honkytonks. Regardless of my naivety, they treated me very well and paid me well. Jim Pitman from the Nightcrawlers was on guitar. They were all well mannered and very modest.

Standing in the William Morris Agency with them and being treated as an equal, gave me confidence and experience that I continued to use in my ventures into the art world.

Katon went on to be a legendary American Artist.
