Did You Know?

Trivia:

James and his band, The Shondells, were asked to appear at the legendary Woodstock concert in 1968. All he was told, however, was that he had been offered a chance to play in a concert "at a pig farm in upstate New York". He turned it down, and later said that it was probably the biggest mistake he ever made. See more »
