Shield eyes before reading

Brad’s got a 3-DVD set of the BBC show “The Old Grey Whistle Test,” which ran forever and had a million different performers on over the years. Johnny Winter was on in 1974, doing a completely rocking version of “Jumping Jack Flash.”

But the visual experience of this performance is traumatic, to say the least. Check out JW’s sleeves:

If you can’t see them, they are cut off at the elbow, and have 4-foot-long red silk sashes coming out of them.

And the mullet (and lips) on the drummer should receive mention:
