just re-read the wedding story it`s an odd well-behaved translation without the Weissner
spirit. Bukowski wrote about the arrangements they had to made ( buying the rings ,rent a room...) and that Linda got a strong flu a few days before the wedding date.
So they had almost to cancel the whole thing.
Locklin, Richmond and a publisher from " High Times " magazine called " Razzo " were invited. A Reggae Band did the music on the party - never heard that fact before would be a good question for the Buk triveria.
Which band played " No woman no cry " on Hank`s wedding?
I wrote some of my best stuff for money and some of my worst for my soul.
Sorry but with the quality of this story i had to disagree.
