Here's one from the man who carried the Stooges virus to Orstralia while attending medical school there in the early '70s, best known for his proto-punk pioneering with Radio Birdman, whose naval aviation radio call sign was co-opted by the Top Gun filmmakers, and whose forward-looking '90s albums Le Bonne Route and Equinox remain faves at my house. (He's at work on a new album now.) The clip comes from the '99 European tour when he operated on his drummer's abscessed leg in the van with a penknife. True story.
