Jon Hammond with PICO and Star-Club survivors St. Pauli Hamburg

There I am with Pico, when I played on his show about his life working at the legendary Star-Club with the Beatles, Rattles, Chuck Berry and others on the Reeperbahn. This guy was the original deal. He is still there working on the Deutsche Bundesbahn and living on the Hein Hoyer Str. in St. Pauli. Amazing guy and life story. I met some of the originals playing there at the Delphi Music Theatre.
