Our thanks to Phil Kaufman for the generous loan of his grandfather's scrapbook, which contains clippings, photos, and other memorabilia from 1910 into the mid-1920s. Phil has served as personal road manager to such greats as Emmylou Harris and Joe Cocker, and was in-house confidante to the Rolling Stones during the recording of "Beggar's Banquet" and "Let It Bleed." His escapades are chronicled in Road Mangler Deluxe (with Colin White), available on his website at www.phkauf.com.
