  1. Hi Bill – although you won’t remember, we met in 89 when I spent a few weeks as a guest Of Charlie and Seraphina on the Steel Wheels tour.

    I have a ca.1960 WEM Westminster amplifier and wondered if it might possibly have been the one you brought with you to the Stones in 1962 along with the AC30. It has RS painted on the grille, and someone superimposed a K over the R, so KR and RS.
