Hi all,

Some times ago I found out that Mick Rogers claimed to have replaced Tom on one gig in 1974.
I was quite dubious about that, since as far as we knew, Tom was replaced for his broken finger story by Mike Urso and Erroneous.

I had the chance to speak with Tom recently after a BFU concert in France, and he gave me clues to that (approximate transcription of his words) :
"That's a different story. My wife had collapsed in front of our house and was brought to the hospital, so I said to Frank I wanted to go and see her. He said "you don't need, now she's taken care of" but I said I needed to go anyway. So this guy replaced me. I think it was Alabama"

It turns out that Manfred Mann was indeed an opening act for FZ & the Mothers in Mobile, Alabama on 1974, 10th of july.

So, there are 99.999999999% chances that the Mobile show had Mick Rogers playing the bass.

Additionaly, Frank was so pleased with Mick's efforts (Mick was a big FZ fan) that he offered him enough money to purchase a Les Paul. So the concert might be furiously interesting to listen to.

I hope this news will kinda stimulate any Alabama or related FZ fan in relaying the search for unknown tapers and help on a new recording surfacing !!!
