On the to-nite show, Johnny had finished his monologue, and sat down to talk to Doc Severnsen who was subbing for Johnny's famous sidekick Ed MacMann. When Johnny noticed that Doc was acting kind of weird , laughing loudly ,grining , interupting, so johnny turns to the band with his famous shrug and raised eyebrows,He turns back leans in his chair."Thats good stuff your on Doc, can i have some?". "No" says Doc " "I can't give you any, but i can sell you some!". That rather oblique* song by Procol Harem you mentioned brings back to mind some dialogue from the movie "The Commitments" which also contains an anecdote about Elvis and his father Vernon, it was yesterday the anniversary of his death if you hav'nt seen this movie one and all about the creation of a Dublin soul band ... the band went on later to tour the U.S.
