Comments: There’s a black foot but where’s Edgar? I like Edgar Winter and I’m grateful for his band’s extended use of my Bright Flash lighting effect which involved something like 180 Press-60 flash bulbs in three portable ferrotype reflectors. These things looked just like a standard 100-watt light bulb but were filled with a wad of magnesium filament about the same size as a Brillo Pad. It was so bright that nobody could see it—or anything at all—for a few minutes. But it sure had an effect. The first time this went off, we forgot to warn the union follow spot operators. We never made THAT mistake again.
