Man In The White Hat – MC5

The MC5 appeared at Wayne State University for an afternoon concert on July 19, 1970. A black and white film captured the quintet’s rebellious musical talents, but Dakota from Weird Womb and I have always wondered about a tall bearded man standing against the speakers. He was wearing a white hat and tee-shirt.

“Maybe he was a roadie,” offered Dakota.

“No, he’s just standing around and he isn’t holding a camera.”

“Maybe he was a narc or FBI informer.” Dakota pulled up the video and at the end of LOOKING AT YOU, the man in question raised his fist. “No, he’s not a narc.”

“Then who was he?”

The mystery continues to this day.

Who is the man in the white hat?
