Almost the end of the first era of the band. (I include the KH/KH tour as the original era, since everyone in the lineup had been involved with Fleetwood Mac since 1968).

I came across this pic on the Danny Kirwan FB group and the question arose, whether this was taken in the U.S. shortly prior to Jeremy's disappearance and conversion to the COG or in the UK. Any idea (or knowledge), anyone?

It was definitely “taken” (a still from some video footage, I think) on Christine’s first tour with the band. So whether it was the first round (fall 1970) or the second (spring 1971) is the question. I wish I knew. Who are the three men with her, Danny, and John?

That very same question was asked on the FB group - entourage, passers-by . . . I wish I knew. What's your 2 Cents on the surrounding - does it look more like the UK or the States to you?

Have you ever seen such a video, where it could be taken from? I haven't yet.

Okay, so to answer some of the questions. I found out it was definitely taken in America, in New Orleans, possibly before or after Christine’s very first show. At the 22:50 mark of the 2001 Coming Home Doc (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=O8ty2VZ-TrE) the larger picture shows the band standing outside of the marquis. This leads me to believe two of the other men in the pic are members of Savoy Brown—or Fairport Convention?

I do remember seeing moving footage of this very scene but I cannot remember where. I will look further into it!

Edit: The unedited documentary elsewhere on YouTube is called “Mick Fleetwood: Two Sticks and a Drum” from 2001: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=SH8hvTUE1HQ. At the 28:28 mark you’ll see the full pic pop up there, too.

. . . thanks a million, aleuzzi!

But you're not quite right in terms the city - the "Coming Home" documentary (thanks for pointing this out!) shows the pic zooming in from under the marquee of the "Fillmore East" in New York, so that's clearly the location.

And taking in account the Mac having been on the same bill as Fairport and Savoy Brown, I'm pretty sure that the 3 gentlemen in question outside of the Mac are probably Rod Price, Tony Stevens and Roger Earl (left to right) from Savoy (definitely nobody from Fairport). So all questions answered, I guess.

I think it’s just 8mm “home” movies Mick recorded. IIRC, he was always filming with it back in those days.

And we’re lucky to have those bits of footage.
