Nice work, Ollie. That is pretty cool. I would take one off of your hands if you make a run of them.

I was thinking about this today. I'm thinking that I will make a limited amount, like 50 or 100 and sell them for $5.00 each. I know that's alot for a pin, but it would get the MNHS $250-$500 if I sell them all. Not much in the way of a donation but still worth the effort.

Whatta you people think? If only 3 people want them its not worth my time.

I was hunting for 1973 BMX photos when I found that gem stuffed in a box. Since there is absolutely nothing on the internet for the Longhorn, I thought I would do my part for the www black cache hole. Let future generations know Hartly paid $3.50 an hour!

Want to see a Peter Davis Arby's Roast Beef pay stub? Smile

$3.50 an hour in 1980 wasn't so bad. I was only making $3.

I was thinking the same thing. I made $3.35 plus "10%" of the waitress's tips..... more like 1%. Eat the rich!

During the summer of 1980 I was making 45 Pounds per week in London.

The rest of the year was totally free college student life. So relaxin'.

Shoot, you made exactly twice what I made at Mickey D's!! Type "rolling papers" longhorn minneapolis into google & you'll see 'em as well as other Longhorn goodies.

I was a cook at Surely's restaurant in 80. I think I would have much rather been working at the Longhorn.

Man, that's crazy, seeing that footage!

I just recently re-digitized a recording of the first of the two-night stand at The Longhorn. My original tape had gotten away from me over the years, but I recently met someone who had acquired a tape of the show from another person who recorded it. Unfortunately, that taper edited out the banter that went on during the breaks in the set when Iggy left the stage, upset by the excessive moshing and the bouncers' excessive reaction to the moshing.

It's too bad the other taper decided to edit his tape, because one of favorite memories of that show was when Hartley got on stage and implored the crowd to calm down, or "Mr. Pop" wouldn't continue with the show.

I was working that night, and hung out with him for a couple minutes while he sitting in the coat check room, after he left the stage. He was pretty shook up by the whole thing, and genuinely seemed like a nice guy.

This was one of the better Longhorn shows. I believe the record store in the video clip is Music City, future home of Northern Lights. Iggy played at the Lemington and then later at Duffy's.
