That the Stooges only played one (historic) gig in England (King's Cross Cinema/Scala) has come to be accepted as Gospel in Stooge history, however, reading the April 1974 Creem article, "Honey Come and be my Enemy I can love you Too" by Ester & Lester (Bangs) we read a quote from James Williamson (e.g., pg. 73): 'We'd been working all these little clubs in England, building up an audience, and DeFries kept saying, "naw, man, wait, you're too big, just wait and I'll give you the call when it's time."
So, Stooge fanatics, what is the truth? If not, why has no one settled the matter- perhaps someone on this board has spoken on the subject?
This is no small mystery. If there were many little club dates surely there must be recorded audio and photos, and perhaps even film.
Looking forward to some clarification of this part of the grand story.
