(Source: Lemmy the autobiography-White line fever.) Sam Gopal"Then in '68, I wound up singing for Sam Gopal. He was half-Burmese, half Nepalese or something like that - I forget now. But he played tablas, which are impossible to amplify. They're too boomy, see - at least they were for the equipment of the time. He'd had a band previously called the Sam Gopal Dream, which had been on a show called 'Christmas on Earth' with Hendrix in December or '67. Some people think I played that gig, but I didn't. By the time I met up with Sam, he'd dropped the 'Dream' and was just going on as Sam Gopal, in suitably modest fashion!"
