Headlights

Glen McKay's Headlights

Jerry Abrams Headlights

 
 

Headlights began with Jerry Abrams, Glen McKay and Marilyn Ashman and they ran the lights at the Monterey Pop Festival in June 1967.

McKay was influenced by what he had seen from Tony Martin at the Acid Tests back in 1966.

Later they toured Europe with The Doors before working exlusively for Jefferson Airplane.

After the Toronto Pop Festival Jerry and Glen parted company but both refused to give up the Headlights name, hence Glen McKay's Headlights and Jerry Abrams Headlights.

Joshua White was also present at the Toronto Pop Festival doing Stage Lighting and what followed was Glen McKay going to New York for a month to show Joshua White the ropes.

Following this The Joshua Light Show became the in house Light Show at Bill Graham's Fillmore East.
