A Nikon F with Tri-X and a ticket for a concert at the Shrine Auditorium in El Lay. A friend of mine told me she could get me a backstage pass for a concert with a new kid on the block, a great girl singer with Big Brother and the Holding Company, Janis Joplin. I didn't go, I had never heard of her. I have now. But I DID go to a "secret press conference" in Los Angeles for a cheeky new British band, the Beatles. Win a few, lose a few.
