To give an insight into my dads' creative technique on the tour I shall pass you over. The ghost of my father visits:
" One of my drawings from Toronto bears the caption " Done when drunk again. This is shit ". The modus operandi was to do quick sketches backstage or down in the audience and work them up with coloured inks back in various hotel rooms late into the night, whilst drunk. This cannot be faulted as a young man's working method. Except that I was a decade older than most everyone else on the road. Whiskers Green being about half a decade behind me, so far. 
The 25th found us in Montreal at the Orpheum Theatre where the stage was invaded when Joe stormed into " White Riot ". Just like the far off days in England. A distant memory by now " . - Ray Lowry
